Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court Grants Bail
Fortunately, a turn of events occurred when the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s court in Azamgarh granted bail to the principal and teacher.
This decision brought relief to those involved and raised discussions about the importance of judicial proceedings in such sensitive cases:
Dictatorship of private school should be stopped.
In Azamgarh Shreya case legal action should be taken against those who obstruct the investigation.
Strictest action should be taken against the culprits.#azamgarh#azamgarh_school#azamgarh_news@azamgarhpolice @dmazamgarh pic.twitter.com/8Xxyshr0h2

This turn of events was warmly welcomed, especially by the Unaided Private School Association (UPSA), an organization representing all private schools in Uttar Pradesh.
The UPSA, representing the collective voice of private schools, expressed its gratitude towards the court for granting bail to the Azamgarh school’s principal and teacher.
Anil Agarwal, the president of UPSA, emphasized the association’s respect for the judiciary and its faith in the legal process.
In response to the tragic incident that led to the girl student’s death, the state government took proactive measures to address the situation. A special committee consisting of seven members was established to address harassment and suicides within schools.
The committee, led by Mahendra Dev, the director of basic and secondary education, includes key stakeholders from both the education department and private schools.
One of the primary tasks assigned to the committee is to draft a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) aimed at preventing incidents like the one that occurred in Azamgarh.
This SOP will outline the guidelines, protocols, and necessary actions to be taken to safeguard the well-being of students and prevent such unfortunate incidents.
This is seen as a step towards enhancing the safety and security of students within educational institutions.
