Post-mortem report saves teacher from jail

MAUN: A post mortem report has saved a Gowa Junior Secondary School (Kauxwi) Agriculture teacher from a hefty fine and possible imprisonment.

The teacher was accused of causing the death of his Form One student after administering corporal punishment on students.

On January 15, the teacher allegedly punished some students for not doing their assignment. A week later, one of the students, a 13-year-old boy from Sekondomboro, died after complaining of severe pains on  the neck and head. Some people including the boy’s parents blamed the teacher for his death.  On January 23, following the death, the parents filed a case with the Shakawe police station and an inquest was opened.
