Class 3 Boy Dies in Ghaziabad School, Parents Allege Foul Play
The child had complained to his parents about being harassed in school but his parents didn’t pay attention.
A Class 3 student in Ghaziabad who had been complaining of harassment by his teacher for some time died mysteriously in his school, leading to allegations of foul play by his parents, police said on Thursday.
According to the police, Sizauddin’s son went to his school as usual on Wednesday morning but the family was told that he had died.
We rushed to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital in Delhi where doctors said the student was brought dead and the body had been sent for autopsy. In the evening, we performed the last rites.Sizauddin
The child was a student of JD Shastri Public School at Loni in Ghaziabad, the family said.
Afsana, the boy's mother, said:
My son had been complaining about his teacher... He said he was being harassed in the school but we ignored it.
School Manager Mahesh Kumar Sharma told the family that the student was initially taken to Dharampal Memorial Hospital in Loni and then to Delhi.
According to her, the Delhi doctor said the child was admitted too late. Sizauddin said the entire sequence of events raises several questions.
What happened to the boy after reaching the school? Why was he rushed to the Loni hospital and then to GTB Hospital? What happened in between? Why were we not intimated about the condition of the child earlier?
Assistant Superintendent of Police Anoop Singh said: "We are awaiting the autopsy report. We will initiate legal action accordingly.”
