DPS rusticates student who assaulted guard
Delhi Public School, Sushant Lok, on Wednesday rusticated a Class 11 student who, along with his father and relatives, had allegedly assaulted a security guard on Tuesday following a tiff over parking of his car on the campus.
According to the school authorities, although the student had come to the school on Tuesday, he was asked to bring his parents.
“The decision to rusticate the student was taken on Wednesday,” said a teacher on the condition of anonymity.
The police too had filed FIR against him and his father in the case.
Meanwhile, the victim, Avdhesh Sharma is undergoing treatment at a city hospital.
CCTV footage produced by the school to the police clearly shows the boy and his relatives mercilessly beating up the security guards with baseball bats.
On Wednesday, principal Dr Ruchi Seth called up Pawan Yadav, the father, to come and collect his son's transfer certificate. But he did not turn up.
Seth said, ‘The boy had been studying in the school since 2006. We rusticated him because we do not want other children to get influenced by him.”
His elder daughter is also studying in the same school but the school has not taken action against her as she is in her Class 12.
“She is preparing for her the board exams and we do not want to drag her into the case as she isn't involved in the incident,” said a member of the management.
The school had issued notices to parents against allowing children driving to school.
On Monday, the accused came to the school and misbehaved with guards.
Then he singled out Avdesh Sharma and started beating him up brutally.
The relatives of the 17-year-old also joined him in the attack which broke his leg.
According to the victim's kin, none of the guard's colleagues came forward to help him.
The school authorities handed over a baseball bat used in the attack to the police.
“The student was not in the good books of teachers. He was very arrogant and used to bully other students,” said a security guard.
