The order from the Sindh education department stated, “Hidden CCTV cameras were installed behind a sheet with holes in the area of the washbasins situated with the toilets of girls and boys/washrooms, so that one can easily watch the movements of male and female students and staff.”

The teacher filed a complaint with the provincial education department stating that she had discovered hidden cameras in the school’s washroom and sought action against the administration.

Following the report, an inquiry committee from the education department’s Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions visited the school.

A notice was served to the  school administration, and principal or senior official  was ordered to appear before the department on Nov 4 and present their stance.

However, no one from the school appreaded before the committee.

The directorate’s director general Dr Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui subsequently issued the orders to suspend the registration of the school with immediate effect.
