A 7-year-old girl was locked up in a school in UP’s Sambhal for 18 hours after staff went home without checking to see if a child had been left behind.

The incident only came to light when the school opened Wednesday morning.

Block Education Officer Pope Singh said a class 1 student of primary school in Dhanari Patti in Gunnaur tehsil was abandoned after school on Tuesday. “She was found this morning when the school opened. The girl is doing well,” the BEO said.

Her maternal uncle said that when she failed to return home after school on Tuesday, the girl’s grandmother reached the school and was told by staff that there were no more children.

The family looked for her in the forest area, but she was not found anywhere. When the school opened at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, it was revealed that the girl had been locked up in the classroom overnight.

Block Education Officer Singh said that after school hours were over, the teachers and other staff members did not inspect the rooms. “It is a case of negligence and action will be taken against all staff,” he added.
