The worked up parents alleged that Rishabh Academy School in Sadar area had warned students they will not be allowed to attend classes till they got a buzz cut, similar to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The school has denied the charge.
As the news spread, dozens of angry parents reached the school and protested.
Finally, the police mediated and pacified the irate parents before getting children entry to the school premises.
The management, however, denied the allegations and said its Secretary Ranjeet Jain had merely asked students to be properly dressed and sport a "decent" hair cut while attending school.
"The idea is to ensure that children lead a disciplined school life. As for the ban on non-vegetarian food, that has been the case always. It is unfortunate that a communal colour is being given to a trivial issue," a school management official said.
