TURBAT: Recently, a grade seven student of Government High School Shapuk opened fire on his principal inside the school. The principal was about to suspend the student for misbehavior when the student took out his gun and opened fire at him. Though the principal was saved, the bullet hit the peon and critically injured him.
An FIR of the incident has been registered against the student. It pains one to think that a student of grade seven not only had a gun in his possession but also had the audacity to open fire at the principal of his school. Who are we raising our kids to be and what exactly are we teaching them?
The government of Balochistan and the deputy commissioner of Turbat should look into the matter and take strict action so that no student even thinks about shooting at his teacher.
