A notice was issued by the Delhi Commission for Women to the Delhi Police and the state education department, seeking reports of what exactly happened in the basement Rabea Girls' Public School.

The Delhi CM has also sought a report from the education department about the alleged confinement of the students for non-payment of fees.

A case has been registered against the school authorities said the police.
