When the students did not come out at the time of the holiday, the parents got this information. Parents also alleged that children were not given any food and water to drink for five hours. After the ruckus of the parents, they were told that the children have been locked in the basement and their absence has been marked because the school management did not receive their fees.
Chief Minister has sought report
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought a report on this whole issue. Along with this, Kejriwal has called Secretary and Education Director with all the information.
At the same time many parents say that they have deposited the fees. Although school management is refusing it and says that this information is not available in the school’s database.

Meanwhile, the school principal has denied the allegations as the case spread across media. The principal says that the basement is not a place to be punished and it is an actinity room where children play and they are taught music. It’s the same as a classroom.
