What worse could be for parents to realise that the child they happily sent to school is never coming back?

A 16 year old Tusshar Kumar lost his life after he was beaten up by some students in the washroom of the school. Jeevan Jyoti school is in Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area, the same where he lived. He was later found unconscious in the washroom of the school by some students and was immediately taken to the nearby hospital. He was later referred to the GTB hospital where he was declared dead.


Ajit K Singla, DCP (northeast) said they have registered an FIR in connection with the case under Section 302 (murder). The case was earlier registered under Section 304 but after the scanning of CCTV footage, the section was changed.

“After scanning CCTV footage, we found that he (Tusshar) had a fight with four students. He fell down after he received punches during the fight and died later. We have apprehended three (students) till now,” Singla said.

It is highly insecure nowadays to send children to school with a fear of such incidents as it reminds us of the recent Ryan International School’s Pradyuman – a 2nd grade student.


The local residents in the case of Tusshar case were later spotted on the common streets along with local residents in order to coax the team to investigate deeply in the matter.

It is not a positive sign of education as the more we are trying to go around it, the more backward we are getting in this regard. We as the society talk about how beneficial education is, however the reality is that these days the authorities of the institution are not careful enough in this regard.

Proper knowledge of actions and emotions should be inculcated, security should be tight, the teachers should not take things lightly as for a set of hours – a parents’ child is a teacher’s child.

We hope that the soul gets justice and the team pitch in a thorough investigation.
