Gwalior: Madhya Pradesh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has sent a notice to Scindia School in Gwalior district after an alleged incident of ragging landed a class IX student in ICU. The commisison has also asked the Gwalior District Magistrate to file a report on the matter.

The student, son of a Bihar minister, was found in a semi-conscious state in his room on August 20. He was taken to a private hospital for treatment and when his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to New Delhi's Apollo Hospital.

Taking serious cognisance of the matter, Gwalior District Collector P Narhari on Saturday ordered a probe to be conducted by Sub Divisional Magistrate S Saxena.

SSP Santosh Kumar Singh has also directed ASP Mohammed Yusuf Qureshi to separately conduct an inquiry, especially into the ragging aspect.

Gwalior police had said that the student apparently tried to kill himself following alleged harassment by three senior boys at the prestigious school.

The trio allegedly forced him to sweep the floor and to stand in 'hen's position' sometimes. They also allegedly beat him up sometimes, police had said.
