Ranchi : A church-run school in Jharkhand's steel city Jamshedpur has suspended 17 students for allegedly shouting 'Jai Shri Ram' in the school, drawing protests from Hindu-right wing groups on Wednesday.

The matter came to light when some parents approached the district education officials, while Appu Tiwari, who runs an NGO, on Tuesday, submitted a complaint to the District Education Officer (DEO) that 17 students studying in the school at Beldih were suspended for shouting 'Jai Shri Ram'.

Meanwhile, some Hindu right-wing groups protested at the DEO's office on Wednesday.
