Chhattisgarh: Death of Boy on School Campus Shrouded in Mystery | Raipur News
Also, strangely, children are staying at the hostel while summer vacation is underway. Arrangements have been made for them to sleep on the patio due to the summer heat.
Raipur (Rural) Extra SP Kirtan Rathore told TOI that police received an alert on Tuesday that a child had fallen from the terrace of the hostel of Godson Angelin Academy located in Khakardih village in Naya Raipur. The victim, Prafful Dubey, was a boarder.
Sources said Prafful slept on the terrace with other children and his body was found on the ground the next morning. It is unclear if he was pushed by anyone, police say. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Rathore said the circumstances in which he died are under investigation and acknowledged that an FIR has not yet been registered. The ASP said it could not give much information about an ongoing investigation, but said it appears to be a case of negligence as the limit of the terrace was around four feet from above.
The boy’s parents work as daily bets in Naya Raipur and are unaware of the legal remedies available to them. In fact, it was the hospital that alerted the police.
Police said the school management said the children were asked to sleep on the terrace because of the summer heat, but there was no response as to why the school was open during the summer holidays. Calls from TOI to a number listed on the school’s website went unanswered.
