The parents’ association of Budha Dal School here will take Tuesday’s case of the illegal detention of students to the President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India (CJI), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).

Association’s legal adviser Sukhjinder Singh said the school had violated court orders, so the parents would file a contempt petition in the Punjab and Haryana high court. Another adviser JS Sodhi said the children were still under trauma and the school could detain them again, if they went back.

The school management, meanwhile, has asked the director general of police (DGP) and other higher authorities for a trespassing-and-manhandling case against the parents. Principal Amrit Aujla said the DGP also had the security-camera footage from the library.

Asked about the administrative inquiry, Patiala deputy commissioner Ramvir Singh he said it would be over by Friday and action would be taken based on the report.
