Class 9 Student Found Dead In School In Karnataka, Family Alleges Murder

Class 9 Student Found Dead In School In Karnataka, Family Alleges Murder

The family of the 14-year-old boy in Karnataka’s Kodagu alleges that he was murdered.

Kushalanagar, Karnataka:  A 14-year-old boy was found murdered in the washroom of a school in south Karnataka’s Kodagu district on Saturday. The incident came to light a day after another
Class 9 student  was found murdered in the washroom of his school in Gujarat’s Vadodara.

Last night, the family and locals from the student’s village in Kushalanagar, 234 km from Bengaluru, protested outside the hospital where the student’s body has been kept.

The student’s family says that the school authorities sent the boy’s body to a government hospital without informing the local police.

Last year, a seven-year-old boy was found murdered at a school in Gurgaon, near Delhi. The incident evoked nationwide outrage, following which the case was handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation, which arrested a senior student.

A case has been registered and police are investigating the student’s death.
