The statement further said that the role of the school is being assessed viz-a-viz its operational guidelines during the unfortunate incident.
“While all agencies of the state government continue facets of the investigation, the Ministry seeks to ensure students of the school are not denied access to learning when the new term resumes fully on Monday 25th April.
