Dozens of students of the Islamic Senior High School at Abrepo in the Ashanti Region are reported to have passed out after police allegedly opened tear gas on them during a demonstration over frequent knockdowns in front of the school.
The students in the course of the demonstration are reported to have blocked the road in front of their school denying motorists the opportunity of using that road.
This resulted in the Police being invited to clear the roadblock and break up the protest.
Several shots of tear gas left many of the students unconscious and were rushed to the hospital by officers of the National Ambulance Service.
Police presence in the school has increased to continue to maintain law and order.
Reports say many parents have arrived at the school to check on their children.
