Medak: The principal of Mini Tribal Welfare Residential School, Medak, allegedly forced 120 girl students to have a hair cut sparking a controversy. The residential school has 180 students. P
rincipal, Aruna, claimed that the students were asked to go for a hair cut since their hair was infested with lice, but the parents complained that the principal hurt their sentiments by forcing them to have a haircut. Following the incident on Saturday, a number of parents visited the hostel on Sunday and Monday and got into an argument with the staff. In the absence of the principal, some parents allegedly beat up a woman attendant at the hostel as she was reckless in responding to them.

Following the issue, District Collector K Dharam Reddy instructed BC Welfare Officer Sudhakar to conduct an enquiry and submit a report to him. Sudhakar visited the school on Tuesday and interacted with students, staff and parents on the school premises.
