The Ratlam Police has started an inquiry into the alleged incident of a convent school debarring 20 students from appearing in their pre-boards after they raised ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ slogans after the morning assembly in Namli town of the district on Friday.
According to district SP Amit Singh, the inquiry was started after he received a complaint from the management of the St Joseph’s Convent school alleging that a disciplinary action against seven students was being given a notorious twist that is aimed at defaming the school.
“The letter from the school management clarifies that no pre-board exams are going on and that seven students were debarred from entering the school till further notice as they repeatedly created ruckus in the school despite several complaints being made to their patents,” Amit Singh said.
Singh on Sunday deputed additional SP Rajesh Saha to record the statements of the seven students, who according to the school management created a ruckus after the morning assembly and disrespected the national anthem.
The school management has so far refused to talk to the press, but is understood to have offered to the police to record statements of anyone present in the morning assembly on Friday to prove their case.
The alleged incident came to light after some parents backed by nationalist outfits reached the Namli Police station and sought registration of a case against the school management.
