wanganj panchayat mukhiya Balram Mahauli told TOI over the phone on Sunday.
“Forty students, including 27 girls, were taken on one-day excursion under the Mukhya Mantri Bihar Darshan Yojana on May 24 and returned after midnight,” Mahauli said. He said the parents protested on school premises on May 25 after which senior district administration officials, including district education officer (DEO) Dinesh Chandradeo, reached the school. “Police were also called to avoid any untoward incident,” he said.
“The permission for excursion was for Vikramshila, but the teachers diverted the route midway to Biratnagar. The letter for excursion was shown to us after our protest at the school,” he said.
