A Delhi government school, which witnessed a stampede in which five girls were killed, will reopen on Tuesday even as the State education department is planning to rope in experts to counsel the traumatised students.
Five girls were killed and 34 other students, including a boy, were injured in the stampede in the school on Thursday while they were trying to make their way up and down a narrow staircase after being asked to shift classrooms during an examination.
“The school was closed for four days. It will reopen tomorrow. We are planning to rope in experts to counsel students who are in trauma after the incident,” a senior Education Department official said.
The official said some students were still in trauma after the incident and to restore their confidence, the department is planning to rope in experts to counsel them.
Meanwhile, the recording of statements of the public and officials with regard to the magisterial probe into the incident continued on Monday.
Deputy Commissioner of North-East Delhi T.C. Nakh, who was asked by the Delhi Lt. Governor to conduct the magisterial probe, has so far recorded the statements of about 70 teachers and two from the public.
