Mr. Sharma said the safety and security of the students was the responsibility of the school managements during school hours and strict action would be initiated if any laxity was found by any private school.Deputy Commissioner, Gurugram, Vinay Pratap Singh told The Hindu that preliminary investigation by a three-member committee had found several security lapses on the part of the school management. “Though there are closed-circuit television cameras on the school premises, they were missing at a few strategic points. Another major lapse was to allow the support staff to share the washroom with students. Also, there were some discrepancies related to the verification of the support staff. The things would be more clear after the detailed report expected on Monday,” said Mr. Singh.last_img
