The district inspector of schools (DIoS) has sought de-affiliation of Lucknow’s Brightland School, where a Class 1 boy was found with stab wounds in the school toilet last Tuesday. A senior girl student of the school is a suspect in the case.

DIoS Mukesh Kumar Singh on Monday sent a letter to the UP Madhyamik Siksha Parishad (UP Board) seeking de-affiliation of the school “as its management had failed to ensure safety of students.”

The two-member committee, constituted by DIoS, pointed out that classes were being run without fulfilling norms. “There were more students than permitted. Class 3 and 4 were being run at a distance from the main school block. The school laboratory also did not meet norms,” the committee said in its report.

The DIoS has mentioned these shortcomings of the school in his letter to the parishad.

On Sunday, the suspect girl and her father alleged that the school management was framing them in a bid to shield “somebody”. They also alleged that the school management’s role was under the scanner and the police investigation was not fair.

The father of the suspect demanded a CBI probe into the case.

After the incident, school principal and co-director Rachit Manas had tried to play down the incident of stabbing, by saying that six-year-old Hritik Sharma had received only minor injuries.

But doctors at KGMU said the boy suffered multiple injuries in his abdomen and chest and the injuries were serious.

Chief minister Yogi Adityanath had visited KGMU to meet the victim on Thursday.
