In the wake of a five-year-old girl being allegedly molested in a school bus in Chandigarh, Ambala-Panchkula commissioner of police OP Singh held a meeting with principals of various schools in the city and told them to comply with court directions regarding ensuring safety of children travelling on school buses.

Flouting the Supreme Court guidelines, most schools have not deputed any teachers on school buses. As per the court guidelines, at least one teacher should accompany students on a bus.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), too, reiterated these guidelines in order to ensure students' safety on school buses.

OP Singh said that ensuring safety of children was their top priority.
