More than 4,000 people gathered to commemorate the new teacher who was found dead at school four days ago.

I was more saddened when the handwritten letter that I was grateful for taking care of the children was revealed.
[Preliminary elementary school teacher: It’s not easy to write with so much sincerity, but I know that he is a loving teacher… ]
I appealed for a thorough investigation into the cause of death and the restoration of the collapsed religious authority.

Online, there are also voices calling for a detour strike by paying love or sick leave on September 4, the 49th anniversary of the deceased.
As the memorial procession continues, the police and authorities investigation is expanding.
