SHOCKING: 9-year-old dies after being punished for not doing homework

INDIA: In a shocking case, a nine-year-old girl on Thursday died after being allegedly punished by her school teacher for not doing homework, police said. Kolipaka Ashritha, a student of class V at Vivekavardhani Model School in Huzurabad, about 35 kms from here, was on July 16 “punished” by her Mathematics teacher to “kneel down for about 20 minutes” after she “failed” to do the homework in the subject, Huzurabad Deputy Superintendent of Police P Sanjeev Kumar said.

Later, the girl informed about the incident to her parents and complained of knee pain following which they took her to a neuro-surgeon, he said. The doctor diagnosed that due to kneeling down, blood clotted near the knee and it affected her nervous system, he said, quoting a complaint filed by the girl’s father in this regard.

As her fever and knee pain rose, Ashritha was shifted to the MGM (Mahatma Gandhi Memorial) Hospital at Warangal this morning where she died while undergoing treatment, Kumar said. Based on a complaint by the girl’s father Kolipaka Sammaiah, a case has been registered against the teacher, the DySP said, adding, that no arrest has been made so far in this connection.
