"We have approached the Zonal Education Office (ZEO) several times requesting the authorities to fence in the school but were told they are facing scarcity of funds," said a parent.

Around 50 students, all minors, studying at school are at the constant risk because the school is located close to the road which remains busy with traffic movement.
