Mumbai: In another shocking incident, a class 11 student commits suicide after being stripped and beaten with hands tied for wearing short pants.
The incident took place on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday came to light after the family of the victim, identified as Dhananjay Tiwari, said came upfront with the accusation that caused him to hang himself from the ceiling.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, two days before his death, 17-year-old Dhananjay went to school wearing short pants despite school rules.
It is alleged that on the orders of the principals, the teachers tied his hands and slapped him repeatedly. After this, they took off his clothes in front of the whole class to humiliate him.
Dhananjay’s mother raised an alarm to find the dead body hanging from the roof, after which his neighbors gathered on the spot and took him to the hospital. Unfortunately, doctors declared him dead on arrival.
The family of the deceased student said that the incident devastated Dhananjay as he was so mentally disturbed that he did not eat food even on the last day.
