Meanwhile, a case has also been registered against the teacher under section 153 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Amba Mata Police Station. 

Meanwhile, the teacher has apologised for the post. 

“Someone messaged me and asked whether ‘you support Pakistan’. As the message had emojis and it was environment of fun, I replied Yes’. But, it doesn’t mean anywhere that I support Pakistan. I am an Indian and I love India. I love India as much as everyone else does,” Nafeesa Attari, the school teacher said.
