Cabinet minister Bikram Singh Majithia met DAV student Atharva Gupta’s kin at Dayanand Medical College and Hospital on Saturday, and asked for an enquiry report immediately.
The Class 8 student has been admitted at DMCH since September 8 after he allegedly jumped off the fifth floor of the school building. The 13-year-old was allegedly thrashed and humiliated by school teachers. The principal and four teachers were booked after Atharva’s father lodged a complaint.
Majithia asked the officials concerned to probe the case. Police and inquiry members will reach a conclusion based on the medical reports.
SOI president Meetpal Singh Dugri and Atharva’s uncle SK Gupta also met the minister. Dugri said, “The medical report is expected tomorrow and it can eventually lead to the arrest of the accused.”
He added, “Atharva’s condition is better and he is off the ventilator now. However, some gastrointestinal problem is a matter of concern.”A four-hour investigation was held at DAV Public School, on Friday where it recorded the statements of the five accused including pirncipal Satwant Kaur Bhullar, and acquired CCTV footage as well.
