New Delhi: The principal and director of a Delhi school have been convicted for mentally harassing a five-year-old student. They have been sentenced to two months in Jail and fined 2.5 lakh each to be paid to the parents.

CNN-News18 reported the story of a young girl was mentally harassed by her school's principal after her parents sought details of the school's exorbitant fee structure - The student was not allowed to enter classrooms and made to spend hours on end outside her class. The parents took the school officials to court and justice was delivered after a five year protracted battle.

Speaking to News 18, Ashok Agarwal, a lawyer in the Delhi High Court and national president of All India Parents Association said, "The worst thing to happen is to make child the victim. The conversation on fees and other things should be between parents and school administration."

Narrating yet another incident of cruelty by school administration he said, a rickshaw puller dropped his children to school at 8:00 am and at 8:30 am they were made to stand out of the school because some part of the fees was left to be paid. He filed a police complaint against the school.

The problem of fees is so grave that the country is on the verge of suicide, "With commercialization of education the fees has been on an all time high - this is in complete disregard of teh SC ruling in 2007," he said.

there should be transparency, one of the parents said on the grounds of anonymity, "There are unique heads added to the fee structure and the school charges money for some vague facility. If we raise questions the child is targeted. We don't know why we have this kind of system. The government schools are not good on many other parameters which is why w esend our children to private schools, but the price we pay is huge."

Agarwal said, "Our children are being forced to attend private schools. The problem is raging in the entire country"
