Admin Seals School, Imposes Rs 30000 Penalty After It Was Found Open In Budgam

SRINAGAR, Apr 12: Administration in Budgam on Monday sealed a school and imposed Rs 30000 as a penalty after it was found open in violation of the government order in wake of the continuing covid-19 rise.

“I Shahbaz Ahmed Mirza (IAS), District Magistrate Budgam, in exercise of powers vested to me under section 144 of the Cr.PC, section 34 of National Disaster Management Act, 2005 do hereby order the closure of (Shah-I-Hamdan) till further orders, besides imposition of penalty to the tune of Rs. 30000 (thirty thousand only) for violating SOPs/guidelines,” reads an order, a copy of which lies with GNS.

The Deputy Commissioner ordered Tehsildar Budgam to close the premises immediately and report him the compliance.

The order followed amid complaints that Shah-I- Hamdan Educational Institute Khumani Chowk Bemina Budgam was conducting physical classes in violation of the government’s directions.

The Deputy Commissioner had ordered Chief Education Officer Budgam to ascertain the facts who later inspected the institution and found normal class work was going on in the school.

“The act of school administration may have serious ramifications, as COVID-19 infection has not been controlled and Government has strictly directed that normal school work shall not be operated as the young kids are among the vulnerable groups,” the Deputy Commissioner underlined , adding, “the act of school administration has been perceived as sabotage of efforts of District Administration in controlling the spread of COVID-19 pandemic and sealing of the premises was found necessary in order to safeguard the precious lives.” (GNS)
