Chhukha District Court

The warden of Pakshikha Central School in Chhukha who was charged with battery has been convicted by the Chhukha District Court.

In a judgement passed last Thursday, the court awarded him a one-year prison term for hitting two students earlier this year. The plank with which the warden hit the students had a nail in it. It caused bodily harm to one of the students.  The incident happened on the night of May 1.

The case was initially resolved mutually with the warden paying a compensation of Nu 60,000 to the victims. But Gaedu police arrested the warden five days later and forwarded the case to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The OAG registered the case with the court on May 24.
