Two schools in Malé were vandalized this week.
A group of people entered classrooms at Iskandhar School and Jamaluddin School on Monday and Tuesday night, respectively, and broke projectors and fans and sprayed paint on the walls, boards and desks.
“Someone tried to break a fan and a projector in one of the class room in the second floor, they would have done this late last night as we discovered what had happened only this morning,” said an official from Jamaaluddin school.
Police confirmed that security guards were present at the front gates of both schools at the time.
“But we cannot say it was due to their negligence, as there are other entrances where suspects could have used,” an official said.
No arrests have been made yet and the reason for the vandalism is unclear, police said.
