Investigations revealed that the error on the part of the teacher was unintentional.

However, we would still like to raise the same question: Why is Hassan, the student, held responsible for this fault, in spite of his being an outstanding success in the first semester of class four?

We call for a compromise solution observing regulations and protecting the successful pupil from depression. Moreover, how is the teacher responsible for this mess going to be punished or taken action against?
