Angry parents protested outside a school in Coimbatore after students complained that they were being forced to use water purifier which had dead rats inside it.
Parents also found dead rats in the drinking water tank. They have demanded that a parents association be formed to address such matters.
"We have found rats in the water purifier. This water is being consumed by the students everyday. We have asked the health department officials so come and conduct and enquiry. The school is refusing to let us form an association. No one from the management have met us so far," a parent said.
Police has been deployed inside the school campus to prevent any untoward incident.
