Three Class-7 students of Delhi Public School (DPS) here were booked on Tuesday on the charge of sodomising a classmate.


The crime came to light when the 12-year-old victim's mother found a suicide note, in which the boy mentioned that he had been physically abused by three of his classmates for the past several months. Timely intervention by the parents prevented the boy from taking the extreme step.

Enraged by the disclosure, the victim's family members reached the school and smashed windowpanes, besides roughing up the school staff, including principal Kiran Dalal. Later, they blocked the Rohtak-Jind road (National Highway No 71) for an hour.

The protesters lifted the blockade after superintendent of police (SP) Vivek Sharma reached the spot and assured them of a thorough inquiry into the incident.
