BENGALURU: A private school allegedly made a 13-year-old boy with medical problems walk 5 km back home to fetch a class work that he had failed to submit. The incident occurred last month and the angry parents have decided to file a complaint with Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights.
While the school claims it had no knowledge that the boy had underwent a recent surgery or the location of his house, the boy’s parents have termed the school’s action as cruelty.
The parents are filing a case against Sandeepani Niketan English School. Shankar Shinde, father of the boy, said, “We were shocked with the way the school authorities behaved with our son.” During the Physics class, the teacher asked all students to submit their class work. But Srinidhi could not submit it because his classwork book was with the teacher.
However, Anuradha Shenoy, principal of the school, said, “The student had not told me that he was operated upon.”
