BENGALURU: The Karnataka State Commission for Protection for Child Rights has issued summons to the school which made a 13-year-old boy walk 5km back home to fetch his class work. Considering the complaint filed by Shankar Shinde, father of the boy who suffered due to the ‘punishment’ given by the school principal, the chairperson of the commission issued summons to the school authorities and directed them to appear before the commission on December 8. Kripa Alva, chairperson of the commission, told Express, “We have issued summons to the school in this regard.

It is a clear violation of child rights.” On Tuesday, Express published a report on Sandeepani Niketan English School located at Sanjaynagar where the principal made the Class 8 student undergo the punishment as he had failed to submit a class work. The boy had undergone a surgery a few weeks before the incident. In fact, his parents had even informed the school authorities about the boy’s medical problems and health condition.
