CHENNAI:  A pall of gloom descended on Mannar Street, at T Nagar, where Aadith Kumar who died in a fatal fall on a private school campus, lived with his parents and sister.

The body of the teen, a class IX student, returned to the family after a post-mortem on Friday morning, was laid to rest later in the evening at Kannammapet graveyard at T Nagar.

Only on July 4, he celebrated his birthday and his lifeless body was adorned with a dashing yellow kurta, which according to those present in the mourning house, was the one the boy was fond of.

Inconsolable mother of the deceased, coerced to get back to the house, kept on wailing as to when she would see her son board the regular autorickshaw he used to take to school every morning. The street was cordoned off from S Dhandapani street off Burkit Road by the traffic policemen, until the kith and kin took out the funeral procession.

The deceased, a relative of former DMK Minister Aladi Aruna, was playing atop the passage way roof leading to the school auditorium, when the asbestos-sheet roof failed to hold his weight and gave way, leading to his fall, after school hours at around 3.30 pm on Thursday. The boy suffered head injuries and swooned. His friends alerted the teachers and the management. The injured Class 9E student of Don Bosco Matriculation School,Egmore, was taken to a private hospital where he reportedly succumbed to injuries. Egmore Police registered a case and moved the body to Government Royapettah Hospital for a postmortem.
