The teacher, Nalini Nayak, claimed she was terminated from service after she refused to embrace Christianity.
Nalini Nayak joined the school on April 6, 2013 and was confirmed in service on April 1, 2016.
“On September 27, the principal called me to her chamber and threatened that I could be killed if I refused to convert to Christianity. On October 1, I was terminated from service,” Nayak expressed.
