A class IX student attacked the principal of his school with an iron rod after he confiscated the boy’s mobile phone. The shocking incident took place at Yamuna Vihar’s Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya on Monday (September 11) when Mewa Lal, the head of the school, seized the mobile phone of the student when he was found “playing during class hours”.
Lal had gone to take rounds in the class around 2:50 pm when he saw the 15-year-old playing with the phone. He confiscated his phone and asked him to get his parents along if he wanted his mobile phone back.
After this, the principal went for a round of the school playground. Around this time, the boy approached him carrying an iron rod pulled out from a broken bench.
“The boy came from behind and hit me. He had a rod in his hand and he first attacked my legs. He made several blows and I got hurt on my legs and hand. Seeing this, some children and the staff ran and controlled the boy,” said Lal, who was rushed to Jag Pravesh Chandra Hospital at Shastri Park.
He further claimed that he would have died if the staff had not come to their rescue.
Meanwhile, the victim has filed an FIR against the student at Bhajanpura police station.
“We have taken his statement and also made his MLC (medico-legal case) report. The accused has been identified as a 15-year-old. After going through the facts of the case, we will send a team to apprehend the boy,” said DCP (northeast) A K Singhla.
