HYDERABAD: A class VII student of Sreenidhi International School, Moinabad, was allegedly not allowed to attend regular classes and made to sit in the library after his parents approached the police and media to raise the issue of the way the boy was being treated by the school administration. 

On November 20, on the basis of the mother Vani C’s report, a case under section 82 of Juvenile Justice Act was booked against Sreenidhi School, for allegedly punishing the student by isolating him from the class and not allowing him to have his lunch. Following this, the school intimated to the parents that the boy would not be allowed to continue studies in the school, as their actions had brought disrepute to the school. 

The school has denied that the student was punished or humiliated. As part of the in-school suspension policy, he was made to sit in the library and was given food and milk at the allotted breaks with the librarian to oversee him, a coordinator of the school told Express.
