A 13 year old boy has gone missing after his teacher caught him while copying during his examinations and asked him to bring his parents to school. The incident reflects upon the physiological fear that students face and take extreme steps. Manish Kumar – a 13 year old student of Digha’s Mahatma Gandhi Hindi School has gone missing. The student was caught copying in his examination following, which the teacher asked him to bring his parent to school. The child left from school to get his parents and is missing since then. His father Raghuram Valmiki has lodged a missing complaint at the Rabale Police Station. The boy who went missing in his school uniform is being searched by the school management as well. The Principal of the school Altaf Shaikh said that calling parents in such cases is routine and that they did not expect that the child would run away. The father however in an interview with Navi Mumbai News expressed disappointment with the school authorities and said that they should have sent the school peon or another student to call them. He said the school should have known that a boy caught copying would have got scared and ended up doing something like this. While the family of the missing boy are undergoing mental distress, the incident reflects upon the pressure that private schools tend to bring on students for simple issues like not paying fees, securing less marks in examinations or copying and the likes.
