Subsequently, the State police authorities had registered an FIR against the management of the school..The main allegation was that the school administration facilitated the spreading of false information about the CAA, spread negative opinions about the Parliament's laws among students, and further contributed to communal tension.The headmistress and a mother of a student were subsequently arrested. They were later enlarged on bail, while the school management also successfully obtained anticipatory bail from the district court in Bidar..The matter will be next heard on December 1.
