In our country, there are many school principals who had set high standards for themselves as role models for the teachers and students. But in a shocking incident in Andhra Pradesh, one principal set a bad example by beating students ruthlessly.
The principal of government-run Tribal Welfare Residential Boys’ School at Dargamitta in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh had become a living nightmare to his students. He (Venkata Ramana) was caught on camera beating kids. Two days ago, several photographs and videos surfaced on social media platforms showing the Principal mercilessly beating young students.
One photograph shows the principal taking a boy’s head in his hands and banging it against a pillar. Venkata Ramana has been working in the school as principal for the last four years. Students claimed that the principal’s brutal attacks on them had been going on for more than a year.
It is also learned that though some students took the matter to the notice of higher-authorities eight months ago, no action was taken against the principal. On an earlier occasion, when the parents of some students visited the school to inquire about the harsh treatment meted out to their children, Venkata Ramana scolded them in front of their children and made them leave the premises.

Sources say that the principal would resort to ‘corporal punishment’ regularly, for one reason or the other. Andhra Pradesh Yanadi Samakya, an organization that works for tribal rights on Tuesday complained to the Nellore District Collector and SP about Principal Venkata Ramana, who allegedly regularly assaulted his students.
A case has since been registered against Principal Venkata Ramana under section 75 of Juvenile Justice Act 2015, SC&ST Prevention of Atrocities Act along with IPC 323 (causing voluntary hurt) and 324 (causing hurt with dangerous weapon or means), said Nellore’s Vedayapalem Inspector.
