In a shocking incident, a six-year-old boy died after he was allegedly beaten up by his senior in a school in Hyderabad.
According to Deccan Chronicle, Mohammed Ibrahim, a Class 1 student at the Promising Scholars High School in Toli Chowki, Hyderabad, was kicked in the groin four times by a Class 2 student in the school campus.
The boy was taken to Niloufer Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Saturday. "He had said that the boy would beat him often. That day, when he kicked my son, Ibrahim said he walked away. But the boy came after him and kicked him four times," the report quoted Ibrahim's father Mohammed Abdul Majeed as saying.
Another NDTV report said that Majeed also lodged a complaint with the police, alleging negligence by the school authorities.
In fact, the caretaker at the school, Maheshwari, admitted that she knew about the incident but was on the ground floor when the fight between the boys happened on the first or second floor.
"I have filed an FIR. This shouldn't happen with any other child again...Concerned authorities should take action against this irresponsible school. What was the management doing?" ANI quoted Majeed as saying.
