School stops teaching kindergarten student who fell from school bus after parents complained to poli


Dehradun: Parents of a kindergarten student on Tuesday approached the State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) saying that after the summer vacation, the school has stopped teaching their three-and-a-haft-year-old son. SCPCR chairperson Usha Negi has now ordered the chief education officer, Dehradun, to inquire into the matter. The boy had suffered injuries after allegedly falling from the window of the school bus on May 8 this year, following which the parents had approached the police. An FIR was also registered against the principal and staff members of Doon Heritage School under section 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and section 75 of Juvenile Justice Act. City-based lawyer Rajeev Singh when queried said that even if the matter is sub-judice, the school cannot deny the right to education to the child. “When any matter becomes sub-judice, it implies that no further action can be taken in the case until court orders. So, if the child was their student before the incident, he should remain one until court orders his removal from the school,” he added.
