She also stated that the authorities instructed the school management to remove the cameras, and the process of removal commenced. Bangar also mentioned that the civic education department would investigate the matter and take appropriate action. She denied allegations that the school was being shielded by the PCMC.

Rani Tilokchandani, the officiating principal of the school, claimed that the CCTV cameras were installed after they received complaints of children fighting near the washbasins. There were also cases of switchboards and taps being stolen, glasses broken, etc., and installing the cameras was considered a preventive measure.

According to the school administration, 126 cameras were installed on the premises.
