News Tech: Dozens of students of a private school in Bhubaneswar were allegedly confined in a room by teachers, who claimed that the fees were not paid by the kids’ guardians.
At least 34 students were kept in a room for around five hours. They were not given permission to eat, drink or go to the toilet and even the fans were switched off, their parents told reporters.
Irate parents staged a sit-in in front of the school’s gate at Ghatikia on Tuesday, demanding strict action against the school for the harassment meted out to their children a day ago.
The teachers rejected the kids’ request to make phone calls to their parents, informing them that they were confined as their tuition fees were not deposited on time. The school authorities then gave a notice to the students, asking them to give it to their guardians.
One of the parents demanded arrest of those guilty, adding that they would approach the human and child rights commissions, and consult the lawyers for the next move.
