Cluny Convent refutes parents' charges

 Three days after a swing she was playing on crashed on her at her school, Nandini, 10, is recovering at a private hospital in Yeshwantpur. Hospital authorities say that it would take at least two-three days before she could be discharged.

Nandini, a second standard student suffering from Down’s Syndrome, was playing at her Cluny Convent school campus at Malleswaram on November 6, when the accident occurred. Subsequently, the parents of the girl filed a complaint against the school.

The school management, on Friday, issued a statement denying the charges and claimed that they had taken good care of Nandini.

The school said the charges made by the parents that there was nobody representing the school at the hospital and that the school did not take good care of the child were baseless.

In a note, the principal of the school claimed that she contacted the doctors at the private hospital where Nandini was first taken to, and the one she is presently undergoing treatment. “Although we had informed her father about the incident at around 8.30 am, he turned up only by 10 am,” the principal said.

The school said that Mohan Kumar, Nandini’s father, abused the class teacher, who had visited the hospital out of concern for the girl.
