Officials of a school in Palghar in Maharashtra have been booked for allegedly threatening a student to give positive feedback about the institution, police said Sunday.
A student had complained that teachers at the school, while distributing feedback forms, had told him that he would not be allowed to sit for the annual exams if he gave a poor review, a Virar police official said.
The 13-year-old student was also threatened with a beating by the teachers, the official said quoting the complainant.
Palghar police spokesperson Hemant Kumar Katkar said Virar police Saturday registered a case under sections of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act and section 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code against the Yahswant Nagar-based school.
The official said a probe was on and no arrests had been made so far.
