Agitated with their entry being barred, the students of Jaipuria School on Friday thronged the Indirapuram police station with their parents and demanded action against the school authority.

Hundreds of parents camped inside the police station till late evening and left only after the police lodged an FIR against the school under various sections.

"The police was reluctant from the beginning to lodge the FIR but unity of the parents and determination put them under pressure," Manish Raghav, a parent, said.

"We would not have left without the FIR," Raghav added.

Police have lodged the FIR under Section 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 147 (Punishment for rioting), 504 (intentionally insult to provocate to cause him break the public peace or commit an offence), 506 (criminal intimidation) of Indian Penal Code (IPC), and Section 75 (Punishment fir cruelty to child) ofJuvenile Justice (JJ) act, 2015.

For the second day in a row, Jaipuria School in Vasundhara denied entry to over 50 students inside school premises for not paying the hiked fees of session 2018-19.

Students were perturbed with the continuous harassment of the school and questioned why the district administration allowed the school to continue the harassment.

"I've heard PM Modi saying 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao'. The school did not let me study for two days, who is going to help me," questioned Misha, a girl studying in Class IV.

On Thursday, the school management stopped the students from entering their classes. Instead, the school called their guardians and asked to take them back home. Meanwhile, all the students were made to wait in the library.
