School vandalism issue rocks UP council
September 12, 2006 17:11 IST
The city-based school had allegedly organised a s�ance trying to invoke the spirit of Jesus Christ and several girls had fainted in the process on Monday.
The matter was raised during zero hour by Congress legislator Ranjit Singh Judeo through an adjournment notice. He accused the saffron party of trying to terrorise the missionary school to gain political mileage.
Demanding a judicial enquiry into the attack, Judeo asked the state government to take stern action against those responsible for damaging the school.
BJP member Nepal Singh said his party condemns the violence but added the issue of trying to invoke the spirit of Jesus Christ was a serious one as it horrified several girls to the extent of fainting.
Arguments soon turned into heated exchanges between the two members.
Leader of the House Ahmad Hasan, in his reply, said an inquiry had already been instituted and three persons have been arrested in connection with the attack on the school.
The Chair later rejected the notice.
