A 14-year-old student of Shree Bharati Vidyalaya in Gujarat’s Vadodara was found murdered in the washroom this morning. He was a student of Class 9 and his body was found in the school’s washroom, bearing knife wounds in the stomach. The body has taken for postmortem.
Last year in September, Pradyuman Thakur was found with his throat slit outside the washroom of a school in Gurgaon near Delhi. The murder had evoked widespread school & outrage, especially when investigation highlighted the lack of proper security at the school.
The police had arrested the driver of a school bus, alleging that he had killed the child when he resisted sexual assault. But this theory was contradicted by the CBI, which arrested a 16-year-old student of the same school.
The teen is awaiting trial after Juvenile Justice Board decided that he would be treated as an adult.
