The headmaster of a government school was beaten up allegedly for "poor turnout" of students. Of the 250 students of Halisahar Nabanagar Bharat Ratna Shastri Pathsaala in North 24-Parganas, about 20 turned up on Wednesday. This reportedly angered the Trinamool Congress workers who later beat up the headmaster, Pratiksujan Sengupta, and an assistant teacher, Sapan Karmakar, for failing to ensure good presence of pupils in the school. A police complaint has been filed at Bijpur police station. No arrest has been made so far.
