KASARGOD : Students of the Government Higher Secondary School in the town had to

attend to classes in an open ground, under the shade of a tree for two days after the local

administrative authorities failed to remove the carcass of a dog that was found in one of

the classrooms.

It is learnt, the carcass of the dog was found inside the building where the classes for fifth

and sixth standards were conducted, on Monday after the school reopened after a week’s

holiday on account of Onam. The carcass was so stinking that none came forward to

remove it from the place, forcing the school authorities to conduct classes under the tree.

Though the local administration was informed, the employees who arrived, just dropped

some limestone powder on the body and left saying they had no vehicle arrangement.

The worst of all was that the school kitchen was located in the adjacent room. This matter

came to the notice of the scribes who had arrived in the school on August 31, Tuesday

to cover an awareness programme on ragging. They immediately informed the TMC

authorities who sent the workers and got the carcass removed.
