A Class 9 student was rushed to hospital as he was found unconscious on his school’s premises in northeast Delhi’s Karawal Nagar, police said. The 14-year-old was declared brought dead by the hospital.
The case brings back the horrifying memories of the murder of Pradyuman Thakur, a Class 2 student of Ryan International School in Gurgaon. 7-year old Pradyuman was allegedly killed by a senior student in the school toilet in September last year. The accused reportedly wanted the school to postpone exams and a parent-teacher meeting.
Tusshar (14) was found unconscious by some students in the bathroom and was taken to a hospital. He was later referred to the GTB Hospital where he was declared brought dead, they said.
Though the school administration claimed that he was suffering loose motions, the boy’s family alleged that he had a fight with some students and was thrashed, police said.
However, the police said that no injury marks were found on the boy’s body.
On the basis of a complaint by the boy’s family, a case has been registered against unknown people. The cause of the death will only be determined after the post mortem, which is to be conducted today by the medical board.
The students, who found Tusshar in an unconscious state in the bathroom, are being questioned by the police.
Tusshar is a resident of Karawal Nagar and the school is also located in the same area.
The family also alleged that school authorities were trying to shield the students he had a fight with.
Local residents along with the boy’s family members staged a protest at the Karawal Nagar Chowk and demanded a probe into the matter.
