16 girls were locked in basement of Delhi School for not paying fee

On Monday, a private school administration in Central Delhi allegedly locked 16 nursery girl students in basement for 5 hours due to delay in the payment of school fees. Parents have rescued their kids from there.

The calls made by the parents to the principal and Chairman were not answered, police has register a case against the management of Rabea Girls Public School for illegal confinement and cruelty to child.

On Wednesday, Anurag Kundu member of DCPCR (Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights) will visit the school and has set up an enquiry team.

On Monday parents have registered their complaint to police against school that their children had been wrongfully confined in the school’s basement.

As per the parents they have deposited the fees and have showed the receipt of the deposited fees to the school administration but school administration refused to accept the fees that was paid on time.

As per the school management, parents have to deposit the fees by 30th of every month. The child will not be allowed to attend the school if fees is not deposited.

Teacher said that the children were kept in an activity room where students play and not in a basement room. Some parents have not submitted the teachers copy to the management therefore the confusion arises which will be clarified with the accounts section.

DCP (Central) Mandeep Singh Randhawa said that “the allegations against the school management will be investigated. A case under IPC Section 342 and under Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, has been registered at the Hauz Qazi police station.”
