In a striking turn of events, a Karachi school locked a seventh-grade student in a room over non-payment of the fee.
While providing details of the experience, Ubair Zohra informed ARY News that she was coerced to stand outside her class throughout the school timing. Meanwhile, the school also halted her from taking lunch during the recess on March 18. The school then locked her up lonely in a room for over an hour.
Zohra said the school’s administrator behaved badly with her father when he appeared there to inquire about the happening.
Her father, Muhammad Adil Ansari, declared the school principal had intimidated that it would give her daughter’s name to the private schools association. And so, she would never be given admission to any school in the city
Zohra’s father said he was undergoing economic impediments due to the coronavirus lockdown. Hence, he could not give money for the school fees for seven months. Ansari added that he had paid three months’ dues for late. More so, he had requested the school to permit him to pay two-month fees each month to clear the remaining dues.
However, despite conceding to the terms, he claimed that the school administration proceeded to harass his daughter by making her stand outside her classroom.
Ansari requested the government and the concerned authorities to provide him justice. However, the father added he had been fed up with the school administration’s behavior and so he decided to file a case against it over mistreating his 12-year-old daughter. He has taken the school’s administration to court.
