Delhi's minorities panel has issued notices to the principal of Rabia school and officers of education and police departments seeking their replies over alleged confinement of some school children in a basement for fee dues.

The panel has also written to the Hamdard Education.Society opposing any move to close down the school.

"Delhi Minorities Commission has issued notices to the school principal, Director of Education (school branch), Delhi government and DCP of the Central Delhi police district to reply on what legal basis the confinement of these children was made and what action has been taken against those responsible for the episode," said Commission chairman Zafarul Islam Khan.

The incident of sixteen kindergarten kids being confined to the school basement last week led to widespread outcry resulting in registration of a police case and an enquiry by Delhi government.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia had visited the school and met the parents of the children, after the incident was reported.

The letter written by Khan to Hamdard Education.Society secretary Samar Hamid has assured the DMC's full support in running the school.

"DMC opposes use of this incident to close down Rabia Girls School. It will offer all help to Hamdard Education.Society in running the school," Khan said.
