Criminal Court last Thursday remanded the parent arrested for striking the assistant principal of Gateway International School for a period of 10 days.
The man was taken into custody over the incident last Wednesday. Police, however, did not reveal any further details on this matter.
According to a source, the incident occurred after the parent asked the whereabouts of his daughter, currently in the 7th grade, after he went to pick her up from school. Upon inquiry, the assistant principal had alleged that the girl went home. However, after a round trip home and back, the parent found out that his daughter was still at school and stroke the assistant principal in an angry outburst.
The assistant principal is a Sri Lankan female and is currently on bed rest for five days upon recommendation of the doctor.
