According to police, Mangesh’s son is studying Kline Memorial High School. The school has been conducting online classes for the past two years due to the Covid -19 pandemic. However, the lab and the library fees are being still charged by the school. School fees have also been increased. As a result, the parents had met the Principal of the school two days ago. However the visit was not satisfactory, the school refused to reduce the fees.
After this, once again Gaikwad and other parents had gone to the school to meet the Principal. But the school bouncer denied them entry to the principal’s cabin. This led to an argument between the bouncer and the parents. In this, a female bouncer pushed Gaikwad.
Giving information in this regard, Pratik Desarda, General Secretary of Bharatiya Yuva Morcha, said that in the last two years, many people have become unemployed due to covid. Parents do not have money to pay the fees. At the same time school has increased the fees. The incident took place when the parents went to protest.
