In Punjab’s private schools, the School Education Department (SED) reportedly forbade the use of mobile phones, as well as energy drinks and junk food.
Private schools are under rigorous instruction from the SED to guarantee that the most recent directives are followed. Private schools that are not in compliance will face harsh punishment. The news comes just after a video of a female student being cruelly abused by her classmates at a private school in Lahore went viral on social media, igniting a firestorm of fury among internet users.
The Punjab School Education Department on Friday imposed strict regulations on pupils attending private schools in the province, including a prohibition on using cell phones while on school grounds.

All private school administrators were instructed to strictly enforce the new rules by the notification. The monitoring teams will frequently visit private schools to check on the application of new policies.
After a video of the girl being abused by her classmates in a Lahore school went popular on social media, action was taken.
