The school has told the police that the parents uploaded a video on social media accusing the teacher of forcing a religious custom on students. In the video, the girl claims that her teacher asked her to pray to Allah.

The girl says the class could not memorize the things in the money chapter. So, the next day, the teacher made them pray to Allah. When they told their teacher that they were Hindus, the teacher told them Allah was a better god.

The school management conducted an inquiry and spoke to the student as well as the teacher.CCTV footage of the class was also reviewed. After the inquiry, the allegations of the parents were found to be untrue.
