The education department got the information about the incident on Saturday when the parents of the three children approached them as the boys refused to go to the school.

Smita Patel, Mehsana District Education Officer, said, “A probe has been ordered into the incident and a detailed report will be sent to be after the statements of the parents have been recorded. We will take action against the teacher if found guilty. Both parents and their kids have been called to the school.”

The accused teacher has been sent on indefinite leave. The officials have denied that the boys aren’t going to school. Kheralu Taluka Education Officer Kalpana Chowdhary reportedly said that the teacher had been sent on leave while the inquiry of the matter was on. But the kids were in school on Monday, she said.
