School accused of reducing marks of Class XII students in Coimbatore

Sources in the school said that the Sulur police along with District Educational Officer (Coimbatore) held talks with the parents in the afternoon.

The school’s principal V. Swathi issued a statement on that the school authorities will submit the grievances of the parents to the CBSE’s Regional Office in Chennai and assured that the issue will be resolved on or before August 5.
