Kejriwal Warns School Authorities Over Confinement Of 16 Kindergarten Children In Basement
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has issued a warning to Rabia Public School authorities who locked 16 kindergarten children in basement over non-payment of fee, here on Thursday. He also said a probe would be ordered into the matter.
He visited the school along with his deputy Manish Sisodia and Environment Minister Imran Hussain, also, the MLA from Ballimaran constituency under, which the school comes.
‘This kind of treatment towards children would not be tolerated and the Delhi government and the police will take action’, Kejriwal warned the school principal.
He said an inquiry would be ordered to look into the matter.
The chief minister on Wednesday sought a report from the education department about the alleged confinement of the students in the basement of the school for non-payment of fee.
The matter came to light after some parents informed police that 16 children were confined in the basement of the school by their teachers between 7 am to 12 noon in central Delhi’s Hauz Qazi area.
