School faces action for detaining children


Lucknow : The Bijnor district administration in Uttar Pradesh Wednesday ordered the police to take action against a private boarding school for “illegally detaining” two brothers for several days over non-payment of tuition fees.

The move comes after an enquiry against Roots International School (RIS) in Noorpur over a complaint by Savita Sharma, who had alleged that her two children were illegally detained by the school administration for 10 days in the boarding for not depositing the tuition fee.

The children were studying in Class 1 and 5.

Bijnor Additional District Magistrate S.B. Tiwari told IANS that the children were returned to their mother four days back.

“Our enquiry has found that the school authorities were at fault. I have directed the police today (Wednesday) to lodge a first information report (FIR) against the school,” he added.
