Bulandshahr: A senior official reported on Friday that a class 2 student at a government school in this area was left locked in the room. According to Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) BK Sharma, the school’s headmaster, four teachers, two Shiksha Mitras, and an office assistant have all been suspended. On social media, there was allegedly a video of the girl sobbing in the classroom and pleading for assistance.

According to Sharma, a student from Sanvilian Vidyalaya in the Segda Pir neighbourhood was locked inside the school on Thursday. The family started looking for the girl after she failed to come home, and she was discovered when people heard her cries coming from the school, according to him.

The school staff was called to open the classroom and the child was brought out, the BSA said. There was a block-level union election in the area on Thursday and the teachers had left early for it, he said, adding the headmaster also left the school after that, leaving the students with the office help. Sharma said this is a matter of grave negligence on the part of the school and action against the entire school staff will be taken.

Earlier this month, a seven-year-old girl had remained locked up in a school in Sambhal district for 18 hours after the staff went home without checking if any child was left behind. The incident had come to light only when the school opened the next morning.
