A class 10 Dalit student from Adarsh Intercollege in Uttar Pradesh’s Auraiya was allegedly beaten to death by upper-caste Hindu teacher Ashwini Singh.
Shockingly, the victim, Nikhil Dohre, was beaten up by his social science teacher on September 7 after he made a mistake in an exam.
An FIR was lodged against Singh at Acchalda police station and the accused is absconding.
The boy was under medical observation but could not be saved.
“We have talked to Etawah CMO to get the panel and video graph to know about the cause of death. Correspondence has also been done. Further action is in progress. Three teams have been formed to arrest the accused,” said Charu Nigam, Superintendent of Police Auraiya.
