A student burnt to death in school: JNV Madhepura!

In a heart-rending incident, 13-year-old Vijay Prakash was allegedly burnt to death by his four school friends in Madhepura district, some 300 km from here. 

The gruesome killing took place when Vijay, a student of Class VII of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, was fast asleep in his hostel room. On Monday morning, his roommates panicked when they saw Vijay engulfed in flames. As the minor boy screamed for help, his friends and teachers in the hostel rushed in with blankets and water to douse the flames. 

By then, the victim had suffered 70 per cent burns. He was immediately rushed to Madhepura Sadar Hospital, which, after initial medical care, immediately referred him to Patna Medical College and Hospital. However, writhing in pain, the boy died on way to Patna. 

Meanwhile, the victim’s father Bindeshwari Razak lodged a complaint in which he has named Vijay’s four friends as prime accused and also blamed the school authorities for the loss of his son. 

According to police sources, a few days back, Vijay had an altercation with his friends on the hostel campus over the use of a mobile phone. The school principal had suspended two students in this connection. Razak insists the same boys who had clashed with his son burnt him to death. 

Though the school authorities said Vijay committed suicide after being humiliated by his friends, the district police do not rule out a foul play. 

“We have found half a litre of kerosene in a two-litre bottle and match stick from the incident site. We are investigating the case from all angles,” said Superintendent of Police Varun Kumar.
