Hyderabad Student jumps off the building as lectures beat him in college

HYDERABAD, Sept 13: The pain of getting insulted and beaten up by a teacher forced a 17-year-old student to jump off the building.

“Before jumping, he told me that he was beaten black and blue by three lecturers in the college because he had scribbled something on the benches of his classroom. He said he felt humiliated and decided to end his life,” said Manik Prabhu, father of V Sanjay, an intermediate second-year student.

On Monday evening, “He came back at around 6.30 pm and straight away went to the fifth floor of our apartment. He called me at 6.40 pm and told me that he was jumping. Before we could do anything, he had taken the extreme step,” said his father Manik Prabhu.

The boy studying BiPC at Sri Gayatri Junior College in Champapet suffered multiple fractures and was immediately shifted to a nearby private hospital, where his condition is stated to be critical.

However, the college authorities are denying any kind of assault with the student and clearing that they had asked the boy to tell his father to meet the principal. “The student had scribbled obscene messages on the benches following which we had asked him to call his parents for discussions. The allegation that the boy was beaten up by the lecturers is false,” said Santosh Reddy, vice-principal of Sri Gayathri Junior College.

While the parents are demanding Rs 15 lakh compensation from the college, the management offered to pay for the medical treatment of the injured student. “We are not at fault. However, since the student felt pressured, we have come forward to pay for his medical expenses. Apart from this, there is not much we can do,” said the principal. After recording the statement of Sanjay, Meerpet police registered an assault case against the college principal and two faculty members.

“We have recorded the statement of Sanjay. The youngster said that his classmates saw him writing abusive words about a girl student of another class and alerted a faculty member, Sandeep at around 3.30 pm. Sandeep admonished Sanjay and took him to the principal. Another faculty member, Vamsi also came to the principal’s room. While reprimanding Sanjay, the principal slapped him before asking him to bring his father to meet him,” Meerpet inspector N Ch Ranga Swamy said.

Based on the complaint from the victim’s parents, police registered a case against college principal Rohit, lecturers Sandeep and Vamsi under sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) and 109 (abetment to commission of any offence) of the IPC. “We will issue notices to the faculty members to appear for questioning and recording their statements, before proceeding further,” the inspector Ranga Swamy said.

Meanwhile, BVP members staged a demonstration in front of the college alleging that students were being subjected to undue pressure and driven to commit suicide. They demanded suspension and arrest of the lecturers responsible for ‘driving the student to attempt suicide’.
