A five-year-old girl succumbed to her head injury suffered seven months ago when her teacher allegedly hit her with a duster as punishment.
Madhu Kumar died last night at the sadar hospital here after prolonged treatment and her father on Tuesday lodged a complaint against the teacher stating that the injury was so grave that his daughter returned home with bleeding head on the fateful day in the last week of May.
Madhu fell unconscious soon after the incident and later in that day she was admitted to a government hospital here but soon she was referred to Patna Medical College and Hospital.
After administering treatment for about seven months, Madhu was brought back home last week as doctors there had observed that there was little hope of her recovery, he said in his complaint.
He blamed the principal of the school Pramod Kumar for Madhu's death.
