This is what happened at a school in Qatar and people are arrested now
Officials of a public school for boys were beaten-up by a student and his family member on Sunday reported The Peninsula.
This shocking incident came to light when the Ministry of Education mentioned it on Twitter, condemning the violence and saying appropriate action had been taken against the aggressors including arrests.
“The Ministry of Education and Higher Education deplores this behaviour which has nothing to do with the ethics of our students, and the authorities have initiated necessary measures against the aggressors after their arrest,” the ministry tweeted.
Minister of Education and Higher Education HE Dr Mohammed bin Abdul Wahed Al Hammadi is pursuing the matter with special authorities and have checked on the health of the victims who have been transferred to the Hamad Medical Corporation for treatment, reported Qatar Tribune.
Director of Schools’ Affairs Department Khalifa al Derham said the ministry has taken necessary action in the matter and is providing the victims with all support as it does not accept any form of violence against any member of the educational institutions.
In another report, Qatar Tribune, talking to some students who witnessed the incident, reported on how it unfurled.
They said the act of violence came from a student’s parent after his son was caught cheating and was banned from continuing examination at the school. The witnesses noted that the student was home-schooled and was taking the examination at that school without regularly attending classes.
