All those private nurseries, matriculation and CBSE schools that remained shut on Monday, July 18, due to the violent clashes in Kallakurichi have been issued notices. The clashes were a result of the death of a school girl at a private residential school in Kallakurichi district in north Tamil Nadu.
It was today, Tuesday, July 19, that the Directorates of Matriculation sent notices to 987 private schools, seeking an explanation from them over the closing of schools against the government's instructions, as per a report in ANI.
