A well known school in Goa’s Panjim area approached police with a complaint that some students captured images of teachers during online classes and later morphed and uploaded them on social media platforms with disparaging comments. Acting on the complaint, the police filed an FIR against unidentified people under the IT Act and have initiated probe in the case.

The school administration has opted to admit students in e-classrooms only after the tender written applications. Apart from this, parents have been called on to oversee the online activity of the students and their e-classes.

As maintained by the Indian Express, the school administration wrote to parents saying that a few students have rediculed their teachers by using a popular social media platform in a demeaning manner. They captured images of teachers from e-classes, morphed them into inappropriate and degrading images and shared them on the internet.

"We had received a complaint yesterday from a school in Panjim area alleging that during some online teaching session some photographs were captured and morphed and placed on social media site with some derogatory remarks," Superintendent of Police (Crime) Pankaj Kumar told ANI.

He further added that an investigation into the case is underway.

In a different incident, hackers encroached an e-class of a South Kolkata girls’ school and gave rape and murder threats to Class 6 girls. After entering the online classroom, the intruders began making obscene sounds and when the girls approached the teacher, they started sending smutty comments.

Parents stated that many such occurrence have happened in the past but this one was "the most serious one". The incident left the minors ‘traumatised’. The school administration has initiated an investigation. The school’s secretary said that they were trying to find if somebody had shared access password with outsiders.
