Authorities of La Martinere school today faxed a detailed report to the HRD ministry and lodged a police complaint about the unauthorised visit by a team, which claimed to represent the ministry for probing the death of a student.
"Seeing media reports about the visit ostensibly by an HRD team to the La Martinere, Joint Secretary in the HRD ministry, S C Khantia, contacted us this morning and sought a detailed report," secretary of the school's Board of Governors, Supriyo Dhar told PTI.
Dhar said a copy of the report was submitted to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) and the Shakespeare Sarani police station in the city.
"We also intimated the joint secretary of what these visitors did yesterday in the name of visiting our school, what they discussed with our principal and me. They informed us that they represented the HRD ministry as a fact-finding team," he said.
Three persons, who claimed to represent the HRD team, created a flutter yesterday when they visited the school in connection with the suicide of class VIII student Rouvanjit Rawla days after he was caned by his principal, but HRD Minister Kapil Sibal denied having authorised anybody to probe the death.
Meanwhile, the HRD Ministry has initiated an inquiry to ascertain how the three unauthorised persons visited the school. The ministry is contemplating legal action against the trio.
