The report states that the parents of these students had approached the school authorities to seek permission for their wards to visit Masjid on Friday to offer Namaz. The same was permitted with the condition that the parents accompany their children to Masjid and later drop them at school.
Meanwhile, officials from the education department visited the school to gather details on the incident.
