Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought a report from the education department about alleged confinement of kindergarten students in the basement for not paying school fees.
The Delhi Police had registered a case against a school for allegedly confining kindergarten students in the basement over non-payment of fees.
“Chief Minister @ArvindKejriwal has sought report on Rabia Public School issue. He has called Secretary and Director education with all facts,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted Wednesday.
The school authorities were not available for their comment on the issue.
Kejriwal and Sisodia will also visit the educational institute on Thursday to conduct a meeting with the students, parents and school authorities.
“Myself and Dy CM will visit the school tomo at 10 am. Will meet the kids, their parents and school authorities,” the chief minister tweeted.
The matter came to light after the police was informed by some parents that 16 children were confined to the basement by their teachers between 7 am to 12 noon in central Delhi’s Hauz Qazi area.
A case was registered against the school authorities, the police said, adding that they were looking for the person responsible for the incident.
