Earlier, the accused teacher had been arrested and sent to judicial custody.

While, the principal of the school too has been suspended.

Ritu Mukhi’s sad demise has highlighted the anomalies in the entire education system and the attitude of teachers who treat examination as the main focus of education.

Ritu Mukhi’s demise has also hightlighted the fact that more than physically, children are extremely vulnerable emotionally too.

And Ritu Mukhi’s death has left everyone with a question – whether eliminating corporal punishment is the end-all for the education system.

Is eliminating even emotional punishment not necessary in schools?

Also, whether any examination is more important than a child’s well-being itself.
