Nithyananda and his two disciples are bearing the charges of abduction and wrongful imprisonment of children under the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The Parents confirmed that they would launch a united fight against the state government and may take legal recourse to assure that education of their wards does not get affected due to the CBSE order.

There were around 800 students enrolled at the school. “We came to know through media that the affiliation of the school has been canceled. We want to assure that our wards study here and nowhere else. We do not care whether the management of the school is arrested or charged,” confirmed Shoeb Sheikh one of the parents.

While canceling the affiliation of the school, the CBSE, however, allowed students of classes 10 and 12 to appear for the Board’s examination in the year 2020, and the shifting of students of classes 9 and 11 to near CBSE-affiliated schools respectively.
