A day after two students were seriously injured when a glass windowpane fell on them, nearly 150 parents converged at the Royal Concorde School in Kalyan Nagar on Thursday morning.

Though there was police deployment following fear that the parents might protest, they felt reassured after talking to the school authorities.

Parents urged the school to ensure no repeat of such incidents and put safety measures in place. The school is personally handling the medical treatment of the injured students besides assuring that they would do everything possible to ensure students' safety.

Confirming that it was a freak accident, parents did not lodge police complaint.

On Thursday, they personally examined each windowpane in the school to ensure they were in tact and safe for their children. Police said the school functioned normally on Thursday.

The two injured students -identified as Hemanth and Paridi- are said to be out of danger, the police said. Hemanth (11) is in Class 5 while Paridi (8) is in Class 2; both of them are residents of Babusapalaya.

On Wednesday morning, the crashing glass pane hit the parapet wall first before falling on the students. Both sustained serious head injuries and were initially taken to specialist hospital. Later, Hemanth was shifted to Manipal and Paridi was taken to a different private facility, police said.

Hemanth's father Yogappa, a surveyor with KIADB said "My son is speaking now, but the doctor has asked us to keep him under observation for another 48 hours."

Hennur police said no one lodged a complaint and therefore there is no case regarding the incident.
