In a recent incident, the principal of a school, where a class 1 boy was allegedly attacked with a sharp-edged weapon by a girl, was arrested on Thursday. The school’s principal Rachit Manas was arrested by the police in connection with the incident that took place on January 16. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had also visited the trauma centre and talked to doctors, inquiring about the well-being of six-year-old, who was attacked in the toilet of Brightland School in Triveni Nagar locality by his senior, in a chilling reminder of the murder of class II student Pradyuman Thakur in a Gurgaon school last year.
Panic had gripped the school a day after the incident took place when other parents came to know about the matter and charged the school administration with trying to hush up the case. Taking note of the incident after the picture of the wounded boy went viral on social media and TV channels, District Inspector of Schools (DIoS) Mukesh Kumar Singh issued a notice to the school seeking clarification as to why legal action should not be initiated against it.
Earlier, seven-year-old Pradyuman of Gurgaon’s Ryan International School was found dead with his throat slit by a sharp-edged weapon in the school’s washroom in September last year in which a 16-year-old student has been charged with committing the crime.
The Juvenile Justice Board had said that the school student accused of killing a seven-year-old boy will be tried as an adult. The board passed the order responding to a plea that the teenager accused of the crime should not be treated as a juvenile. The board had earlier rejected the bail plea of the Class 11 student, accused of killing Pradhuman Thakur on the premises of the Ryan International School here on September 8.
