The Haryana Commission for Protection of Child Rights, along with officials from various government departments — part of the ‘Surakshit School Vahan Policy’ inspection team — have registered a complaint with the district administration against Shri Ram School in Gurgaon’s DLF area, claiming it was not following mandatory safety procedures. The complaint also said the school authorities had “misbehaved” with officials who had visited the school to inspect the buses.
B K Goel, head of the inspection team, said the school buses were often found in a shoddy condition.
Ramesh Pal, assistant commissioner of police, DLF, confirmed that police had received a complaint against the school. “School authorities have denied the allegations. We will visit the school and conduct our own inspection and inquiry,” he said.
However, Manika Sharma, director of The Shri Ram Schools, said, “Instead of checking the files, they sought admission for a child in Class II. They threatened the staff and shouted at the authorities.”
