Pupils who were not locked in the gym, but were made aware of the incident immediately began a call-to-action protest. They chanted ‘release our friends’, the footage of this has been widely shared.
Dubai Police were contacted on Tuesday evening and were seen dealing with the incident at the Al Qusais school.
