Ever since living with the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus has become the new normal, a number of things in our daily lives have changed. One of the biggest changes is that students are now attending their classes online. However, with children spending most of the day online, does not bode well for they may be subject to a number of unwanted things, while unsupervised. Proving this statement true, a shocking incident has happened in the Sheopur district of India's Madhya Pradesh! A school in Sheopur was recently forced to suspend all its online classes, after a porn clip was shared on the school's WhatsApp group, while an online class for students of the 8th standard, were underway!

All the schools not just in Madhya Pradesh but across India are conducting most of their classes online and in light of such an incident, it has brought upon a cloud over these online classes! The teacher, as well as the students participating in the online English class were shocked when a porn clip began playing on everybody's mobile phones and laptops. Some students are said to have immediately alerted their parents, who in turn reached out to the school authorities. The parents are said to have gotten enraged at such a blatant act and registered their protest with the school management. 

On coming to know of this, immediate action was taken by the government authorities. An official, under the condition of anonymity said, "We immediately discontinued the online classes and switched off the phones." Ironically, most of the students at this school in Sheopur, are children of senior government officials and prominent business families from that region. Sheopur is a remote region of Madhya Pradesh and lies on the border with Rajasthan's Sawai Madhopur district. The Principal of the school acknowledged this incident and stated that it seemed to be the work of some hacker. He also added that all online classes have been suspended as of now and would only resume after the issue was resolved. The Principal also stated that the school management would strengthen the cyber security from their end, to ensure such an incident is not repeated. Some activists staged a demonstration at the local Police Station and also filed a complaint demanding the arrest of the miscreant behind this incident. The Police are currently investigating into it. Stay tuned for updates...
