When she returned home and told her parents of the incident, her father, Mohammad Shagir, went to the school to complain, only to be assaulted and resulting in his death.

A case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder has been filed against three teachers and the cook of the mid-day meal has been filed for assaulting Shagir. 

However, all of them are absconding and ever since the incident the school has remained shut, says the report.
