Basangouda Sidramani from M.K. Hubli, claiming to be a leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party and former director of a sugar factory, arrived at the school along with his supporters in three jeeps, and making a foreful entry into the school premises abused the staff and nuns demanding admission for two children.
School authorities said about 50 odd people entered the school and started abusing the staff.
“I belong to the ruling party and you must admit two of my friends’ children in the school…Or else, I won’t spare your school,” he warned the teachers, even as the school children were shocked with this sudden unwarranted situation created by Basangouda.
Sister Thankam, Head mistress of the school called the members of the Parents-Teachers Association and also sought police help. After the police and parents arrived, Basangouda and his followers left the scene in three jeeps threatening the management of dire consequences.
