Mellakatte teacher suspended for forcing students to clean toilets

The education department officers have suspended a teacher named CK Savithramma for forcing female students to clean toilets in Mellakatte High School, Devanagari. CK Savithramma is a schoolteacher in a government high school in Mellakatte village.

The education department suspended teacher CK Savithramma from Mellakatte school after reports of forcing female students to clean toilets. An early investigation discovered that CK allegedly forced the children to clean the bathrooms and recorded it to blame the headmistress of the school.

CK Savithramma involved herself in controversy after a video appeared on social media. The video clip showed female students cleaning toilets under the supervision of CK at a high school in Mellakatte village.

The students seemed to clean bathrooms with buckets and sweepers. It shocked netizens about teacher’s behavior and also the management of the school.

However, the incident appeared to be the outcome of a disagreement between CK Savithramma and the principal of the school, A Shobha. Before the event, Shobha had sent a notification to CK Savithramma.
