Delhi: The Queen’s Mary School in North Delhi recently filed a complaint against a parent of a child. It was for forging their child’s COVID-19 report. The parent claimed that the child tested positive for attending in-person classes in school.
“The school did not follow social distancing guidelines and is now shifting the blame on us. We will produce all documents. My child is sick and in quarantine now. We have been following all COVID norms,” said the parent.
Parent groups of the school accused the school. They said that the child tested positive because of negligent school authorities. Yet, the school has denied all such allegations. A group of parents on Monday demanded having the in-person tests conducted online. In view of the angst among the parent community, the school closed down for the next six days.
As per recent reports, such protests have been going on across different schools in Delhi. They claim children affected with COVID have increased after institutions reopened. The major demand is to conduct 9th and 11th standard examinations in online mode.

The Queen’s Mary School verified the COVID report submitted by the parent and found out that it was forged. Hence the authorities filed a complaint at the Subzi Mandi Police Station.
Principal Ritu Solomon had written a letter to the district Deputy Director of Education (DDE) stating that “Instead of informing the school authorities, she [the parent] circulated the medical report on the parents’ WhatsApp group with an intention of instigating them and claimed that her child had contracted the virus due to negligence of school authorities thus misled the parent community.” Till now no action has been taken against the school or the parent by the Police or the Directorate.
