FIR Against Assam Valley School
The family members of Namish Ganeriwal, a Class VII student of Assam Valley School in Sonitpur district have filed a police complaint against the school authorities on Monday alleging negligence by them after Namish was allegedly beaten up by senior students of the school last week.
The victim, Namish Ganeriwal (13 y/o) is likely to undergo a surgery of his injured jaw on Wednesday and will likely have titanium plates inserted in his jaw line to repair the damage. Mrinal Ganeriwal,
the student's father alleged that though the school authorities were aware of the injuries, they did not provide necessary specialized treatment.
"My son was beaten up by other students in the hostel. It clearly shows the laxity of school authorities in maintaining the safety of students," he said. On the other hand, the school authorities, in a press statement, said, 'The boys have been friends for over a year and usually engaged in friendly jokes and mischief. On July 6, one of them after watching WWF tried a 'neck lock' (a wrestling move). Though the other boy was told to tap the hand if he felt uncomfortable, the pressure exerted was high, leading to Namish dropping on the floor and injuring his jaw.
