Pune, June 30, 2016: Catholic nuns and their students of Mount Carmel School in Pune joined demonstration in front of the school protesting the alleged harassment by a local corporator over school admissions.

The protest was organized by the Catholic Association of Pune against corporator Aarti Babar and her husband Sainath Babar.

School principal Sr Marisa A.C. said the harassment started two months ago after Aarti Babar approached the school with a list of students seeking admissions in junior school, reported The Indian Express.

“She demanded that all students should get admissions and I assured that we would try, but we do not sell seats. She left and within minutes, her husband barged in with his men and created a ruckus. He left after issuing threats, and last week, he repeated the same act by entering the school forcibly. He came to the principal’s office and broke pots to intimidate us,” said the principal.

“This is a girls’ school and we are extremely worried about the safety of girl students and staffers in the event of such violence. Hence, we also informed about the incident to the local police station,” the principal added. She went to meet Pune police commissioner on Monday evening.

    To demand that all students should get admissions in schools is irrational for the schools have limited space to say the least.
