Students bunk classes due to fear of ghost in school
Gajapati: In a bizarre incident, students of a government-run school in Gajapati district have stopped coming to the school due to fear of ghost on the school premises.
According to sources, the students of Gopabandhu Vidyapeeth under R Udyagiri police limits have not attended their classes for the past four days due to the presence of the evil spirit.
On Friday, some students of the school fell unconscious during the prayer session and later complained of nausea. Locals attributed the incident to the presence of evil spirit and sought the help of a sorcerer.
Since the incident, the parents are not allowing their children to go to school due to their superstition. Block Education Officer (BEO) has also visited the school and took stock of the situation.
