The school administration kept all the school kids inside the classrooms till 2 pm and allowed them to move out only after normalcy prevailed.
The school administration claimed that it could be someone's mischievous act that had instigated the bees. The school will remain closed on Saturday and in the meantime the hive will be removed to avoid such incidents in future, the school administration informed.
