Speaking on the same, she said, "I request the CM to get this investigated otherwise I'll even sit on a sit-in protest before him. I want justice & action against the accused. I want security because they (accused) are also hatching a conspiracy against me. I fear they'd do something to me."
Agra's District Inspector Of School Manoj Kumar told ANI, "There was a complaint. We took statements of both sides. The principal gave her statement. We also questioned the staff. Initially, the complaint was about collecting a higher fee. It was resolved. Later, matters of personal dispute started coming to light."
