However, the report said that the schools had even conducted parent-teacher meetings to address the issue. “Not just us, but even the parents are shocked to know about such incidents. Even they said that they started observing a change in the behaviour of their children,” the principal was quoted as saying by the publication.

However, the schools decided not to suspend the students. Instead, they decided to send students to counselling sessions to see the behavioural change.

KAMS general secretary D Sashi Kumar said, “We found oral contraceptive pills and even alcohol in water bottles in a few schools. Not just this but foul language, acts of bullying were also observed in 5th grade students.”
