One of the agitating parents alleged that the school authorities tried to downplay the matter when they were informed about it.

Several parents protested outside the school for almost three hours, demanding adequate security measures for students.

Sikha Sarkar, the teacher-in-charge of the school in the Lake area, told Metro: "I received a complaint on Thursday and forwarded it to the police as they are the ones who can investigate the charges and take legal steps". In a girl's school, a male dance teacher should not be appointed. "Her parents met the school authorities with a medical report of the child the next day, but the school allegedly tried to hush up the incident on the grounds that it might tarnish the school's reputation and also affect the child's future", the report said. Angry parents at GD Birla had protested for days until the principal was removed and the teachers were arrested. "The guidelines have already been laid by the government".
