Hyderabad: A six-year-old boy died four days after being allegedly beaten by his senior, a 7-year-old, at a school in Hyderabad’s upmarket area, police said.
Mohammed Ibrahim, a class one student, suffered serious injuries after another boy, studying in class 3 in the same school, allegedly bullied, beaten and kicked Ibrahim four times in stomach in the school on July 12. He died in hospital due to his injuries yesterday after undergoing two surgeries.
The 37-year-old father has lodged a complaint with the police alleging negligence on part of school authorities. Mohd Ibrahim was studying in Promising Scholars School at IAS Colony, Tolichowki. ‘It is total negligence on the part of the caretakers at the school,” said Ibrahim’s father Abdul Mujeeb.
The police have registered a case against the older boy and are conducting investigation. “Since the accused is minor, we are mulling over options on how to go ahead with the case and also investigating the alleged negligence on part of the school,” said Inspector K Srinivas.
Meanwhile, school caretaker Maheshwari admitted that she knew about the incident but she was on the ground floor and the fight between the boys happened on the first or second floor.
