DC Ramban has taken a strict note of the absence of teachers from the school in the video and has directed the CEO Ramban to conduct an enquiry into the incident with immediate effect and submit a detailed report within seven days positively. “Your probe must also focus on how an outsider was able to enter into the premises of the Government School and shoot a video which also raises concern about the safety of the school students,” the DC maintained in letter to the CEO.
