Kulgam, Jan 29, KNT: At a time when Coaching Centers have allegedly become commercial centres in the name of education with the sole intention of maximising profits, a Coaching Center here in the Kulgam district of South Kashmir crossed all the boundaries when it forced students to take off their shoes and made them stand bare foot on the frozen snow.
The institution in question is situated at Pohlu Kulgam’ A1 Coaching Centre ‘. To exact fees from the students, the Coaching Centre did this humiliating act.
A couple of parents told the Kashmir News Trust News Agency that they were upset by the incident and lodged a complaint at Devsar police station. We can’t believe that in this bone freezing cold, any Coaching Center can stoop so low-force students to stand bare feet on snow just for not paying a fee,” they said.”
The police took cognizance of the matter while the Coaching Institute’s management offered unconditional apologies and claimed in writing that such events would not be repeated in the future.
“It is not enough to just apologise, the owners of the Coaching Centre should be booked,” said the locals.
One of the owners of the A1-Coaching Centre first feigned ignorance when approached and then denied this.but all this was recorded in camera.
