SRINAGAR — Private schools that are demanding fee from parents during this COVID-19 crisis have now started threatening to terminate services of non-teaching staff.

This has come to light when over 30 drivers of a reputed private school ‘Iqbal Memorial Institute’ staged protest outside the school gate here in Bemina area of Srinagar city alleging that the school management is denying salaries to them and has even threatened to terminate their services, if they raised any question.

The protesting drivers said that the school management is behaving inhumanly with them.

“When we demand salaries, we are being asked to show the attendance of the lockdown period. Where from will we get the attendance when government had enforced lockdown in wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” they said.

However, when contacted, an official declined to comment on the issue.
