The two lawyers had raised the issue of children “being exploited and subjected to child abuse repeatedly within the boundaries of schools” in the campuses. They had demanded that Central and state governments notify a set of ‘non-negotiable’ child safety conditions for schools.

The CBSE had also issued a circular mentioning guidelines to be adopted by all schools for ensuring the safety of the students. The CBSE, in its circular, directed schools to install CCTV cameras, ensure police verification of staff and regulate entry of outsiders in school building.
