A 13-year-old boy from the Dalit community died in a hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich district almost nine days after he was allegedly thrashed by his upper-caste teacher.

The boy died due to severe internal bleeding, caused by injuries during the incident.

As per local news reports, Rajesh Vishwakarma, the victim’s brother, told reporters: “My brother was beaten up by his teacher because of school fees of Rs 250 per month. I had paid it online but the teacher did not know and brutally beat up my brother.”

The victim’s uncle has now lodged a complaint with the Sirsiya police, reported news portal Siasat.

Shravasti SP Arvind K. Maurya said that a case has been registered and investigations were underway.

Last week, a nine-year-old Dalit boy, who was allegedly thrashed by his school teacher in Rajasthan, for touching a drinking water pot, also died.
