Maharashtra DGP Satish Mathur said, “Thirteen people have been identified, of which 11 have been arrested and a search for the other two is on. Police will collect more information from students and other officials once the school reopens.”

Earlier, one of the minors had named only one individual. But the investigation is underway, the DGP shared.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday said that a team of female officials has been formed to check whether the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) created to safeguard girls were being followed or not.
