Safety at School

On 2 December 2017, two teachers of this school, Abhishek Roy and Md. Mofizul were arrested for sexually assaulting 4-year-old student of this school. Moreover, it came to be known that the school did not implement an earlier recommendation by CBSE of installing CCTV inside the school.[2][3] The CBSE circular mentioned, "Any violation or lapses with regard to safety and well being of children in school campus would invite appropriate action including the disaffiliation of the school as per the provisions under affiliation bye-laws of the board." In 2014, a girl student was sexually assaulted and the school authorities didn’t take any action.[4]
