AGRA: A 14-year-old boy who suffered serious injuries after he allegedly jumped off the second floor of his school building two weeks ago died at JN medical college in Aligarh during treatment on Tuesday, police said.
He was a student of Class VIII at a private school in the district, police said. The boy’s family has alleged negligence on part of the school management and also complained that his teachers had allegedly put pressure on him not to take part in athletics and used to punish him often, telling him to focus on his studies instead.
On the basis of a complaint filed by the victim’s father, the Aligarh police registered an FIR against the school management under section 338 of the IPC (Causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) at the local police station and started an investigation into the matter. The body was handed over to the family members. Pradeep Kumar, station house officer (SHO), Bannadevi police station, said, “As the boy has died, a decision on whether the case is to be altered…that is, by adding charges of abetment to suicide or culpable homicide against the accused would be taken if the victim’s family members approached us.”
On December 1, one of the accused teachers reportedly punished the boy for not completing his academic work. Minutes later, he allegedly jumped off the second floor of the school building. The incident was captured on CCTV footage. He was immediately taken to hospital, police said. Mohd Dilshad
