GURUGRAM: 30 students and three teachers of GD Goenka World School, Sohna Road became the targets of an unruly mob on Wednesday afternoon in Bhondsi. The mob of around 50 people was protesting the release of the film ‘Padmaavat’ on Sohna Road. The bus was headed towards Gurugram city when the incident took place. Apart from the teacher and students, a caretaker was also present on the bus.

According to officials, the incident took place around Ghamroj village when a mob carrying lathis and stones attacked the bus.

“The mob had just attacked a Haryana Roadways bus and the school bus belonging to GD Goenka World School which was passing by also came under attack. The mob pelted stones at the school bus due to which the window panes broke. However, there were no injuries in the incident which took place around 3 pm,” said Gurugram deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh.

“As soon as we came out of the school, the bus was attacked. Even the police could not control them. The children somehow took cover inside the bus,” ANI quoted one of the staff members as saying.

The school authorities too confirmed that the students did not receive any injuries.

“The bus was going towards Gurugram and was near Gamhroj when a mob attacked the bus. The accompanying teachers ensured that all the children were safe and asked them to take shelter under the seats. After this incident was reported, the school called back all the other buses and informed parents to come and collect their children,” said a school official.
