The mother alleged that on Thursday she received a call from the manager around 6.25pm asking her to come to the hostel as he wanted to discuss something important. Again, she got a call around 7:04 p.m. and the manager told the mother that her daughter was not well and that we were taking her to the hospital. “I sent my sister to my daughter’s home but when she got there the principal told her that they had sent the minor to a private hospital in Barabanki,” she added.
The mother further alleged that when her sister arrived at the hospital, doctors pronounced the minor brought in dead. SHO, BBD Atul Kumar Singh told TOI that the director and manager told them that the miner was hanging on the ventilator.
We have filed an FIR under the murder charges against the principal and caretaker, SHO said.
