The gruesome murder of a teacher, Mostafa, by an SSC examinee is another instance of crime committed by a student. This has exposed a very alarming development in our juvenile psyche. A teacher has the right to punish any examinee who has adopted unfair means in an exam. But in this case, the student chose a violent path and took revenge by stabbing his teacher to death. This is outrageous. The authorities should take necessary action against the culprit student as well as inculcate the students with moral alues so that they learnt to respect their teachers.
