Kotwal school students' parents petition Child Rights Commission
Vikhroli - Parents of students of the Manohar Kotwal School in Vikhroli have sought the intervention of the Child Rights Commission in taking action against the school management for allegedly torturing the students for non payment of fees.
Last week, the Kotwal school allegedly made the students sit on the floor for not paying the school fees and detained them unnecessarily. Agitated parents, who believe the school has failed in providing basic facilities to the students, say the school management has no right to hike the school fees. Mumbai Live had first published the story, stating the parents' demands.
The parents, who have approached the education department as well, say the department has taken cognizance of the incident and has asked the education inspector to investigate the matter. State Education minister Vinod Tawde too has sought a report on the matter.
On 6 February, students were made to sit on the classroom floors for not paying the hiked fees. They were given a deadline of 15 days for paying up.
