LETTERS: Death of a headmaster: where responsibility lies

From Mr Basil D'Silva

Sir: A group of policemen should arrive unannounced at their chosen school with prior permission of the headmaster and check every child while leaving the gate of the school at the end of classes for lethal weapons and drugs. A little inconvenience to the children on the day will not cause many problems for the parents.

Widespread news of such raids should make children think twice before leaving home for school as to whether or not to carry a lethal weapon.

Yours sincerely,

Basil D'Silva
