Video: Arvind Kejriwal visits school where children were kept captive amid protests
New Delhi, July 12, News24 Bureau: Reacting to the wide protests by the parents on Tuesday for the insensitive act of a Delhi-based school which had held its kindergarten students captive for the non-payment of fees, the Delhi CM, who visited the school said that this act of school is unacceptable. The Delhi CM faced the ire of the parents as they shouted slogans against him when he visited the school.
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia visited Rabia Public School where kindergarten students were allegedly detained on 9th July for nonpayment of school fees.
59 innocent children, all students of kindergarten were virtually locked in the basement of the school building to put pressure on the parents to clear the school fees and other dues. In what can be called the height of insensitivity, the children were not given any food, water and they were made to sit in the hall where even the fans were switched off.
The school was Rabea Girls Public School in old Delhi and the incident occurred on Tuesday, where the children were held captivated inside the school basement for nonpayment of school fee.
This was the most brutal and insensitive way of handling reportedly the issue of non-payment of school fees.
Seeing the height of this cruelty towards the innocent kids, the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked for a report on the matter.
"16 children were allegedly locked in the basement of the school. The parents alleged that the children who punished for non-clearance of fees. We have registered a case under section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act. We are investigating the matter," police said to ANI.
