Ganderbal: The students of a government school in central Kashmir were on Monday forced to take classes in open after the landowner locked the main gate of the institution in Razen Gund area of Kangan town in Ganderbal district.

Head Master, Government Middle School Razen, Nisar Ahmed Balkhi said that on arrival, he found the school locked while students were waiting outside.

“We tried to persuade the landowner but he didn’t budge and claimed that School Education Department failed to fulfill the promise made to him 37 years ago that he will be given a government job in Education Department,” Balkhi said adding that even Sarpanch and Panchs failed to motivate the landowner.
