Probe launched after teacher distributes ‘anxiety pills’ to students


The pills are allegedly for easing anxiety. 

Qatar’s education ministry has launched an investigation following a complaint by a parent about a teacher allegedly giving pills to some students.

According to Twitter user @NawaryH, the teacher distributed sedative pills to female students to help them deal with anxiety during an exam in a private secondary school in Doha.

“The bigger problem is that the teacher is a psychiatrist, how did she get hired as a school teacher? And give the students pills that are prescribed for mental health patients!” the Twitter user added.

The post attracted several complaints from locals urging the government to step in and hold those in charge accountable.
