REFUTING ALLEGATIONS, SCHOOL MANAGEMENT CLAIMED THE BOY HAD TO STAY BACK IN SCHOOL AS HIS VAN LEFT WHILE HE WAS IN WASHROOM

MEEEUT: A kindergarten student was allegedly held hostage in a school at Khurja in Bulandshahr district after his father, a farmer, failed to deposit his fee.

Sunil Pratap Singh, the father of Abhay (4), registered a case against the school management.

Refuting allegations, the school management claimed the boy had to stay back in school as his van left while he was in washroom.

Superintendent of police (rural), Bulandshahr, PK Tiwari said the incident occurred on Friday and investigations were on in the case.

Abhay is a resident of Hajratpur village and goes to school in a van.

His father could not deposit his fee for the last few months due to financial crisis. He accused the school management of keeping the boy in captivity to force him to clear the dues.
