Kolkata teen jumps to death from school terrace after being scolded by teachers

Kolkata/IBNS: A student of Class 10 allegedly jumped to his death from the terrace of his school in south Kolkata's Kasba area on Monday after being scolded by teachers for not completing a project, the police said.

The 16-year-old boy was rushed to a hospital nearby only to be declared dead on arrival.

The parents have alleged that two teachers had scolded their son at school for not completing a project and claimed that the school was trying to hide something.

In a statement available to the media, the English-medium school said that an investigation is underway.

"No school will ever target children and harass them. We are a child-friendly school and no teacher will react the way it is being claimed," it said.

This comes less than a month after a Jadavpur University student jumped to his death allegedly due to ragging by seniors at the hostel campus.
