The anger of family and friends of Akkriti Bhatia (17) at Modern School, Vasant Vihar, on Thursday forced the school authorities to close the institution on Friday. The school was also issued a show-cause notice by the Delhi government.

Akkriti’s post-mortem report, which came on Friday, said she died a natural death caused by suffocation.

Three inquiries — by the Delhi government, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and the school — have been ordered into Akkriti’s death. She dies during school hours on Monday after she suffered an asthma attack.
