Around 40 students of a school in Prayagraj district of Uttar Pradesh
were forced to sit outside school after agitating farmers locked stray cattle inside the school premises on Monday.
The principal of the school, Kamlesh Singh
 told Hindustan Times that when he arrived at 9 am into the school in district’s Bhadivar village, there he "saw around 100 stray cattle locked inside."
The agitating villagers – armed with sticks – had locked the gates, refusing to open them. Later when the students began arriving, they were forced to sit out in the cold for classes.
According to sub-divisional magistrate of Bara,
D.S. Pathak, " the villagers were protesting because they have been losing their crop to stray cattle over the last several months. Farmers have in the past lodged complaints with district officials, but failing to get relief and tired of losing their crop to the stray cattle, they were forced to take such a measure."
