The crisis gripped the Indian Community School Kuwait reaches another level as the dispute between sponsor and the management continues. In a sudden move, the sponsor last day dismissed the current management board and appointed a new five member adhoc committee to manage the school.

The sources close to the previous board informed that the board is going to fight the issue legally and had approached India government and PMO regarding the issue. "The school board is democratically elected by the parents of Indian students and we will not allow anyone to play with the future of our students", one of the board member told
