Kolkata: Hundreds of parents ransacked the Christ Church School in Kolkata on Thursday where an 11-year-old had died under mysterious circumstances. The parents demanded immediate identification of the senior students who allegedly bullied the victim, a student of class 5, last week and locked her up inside a toilet.

The class 5 student had been allegedly bullied by three class 8 students. The victim suffered mental trauma after being locked up inside school toilet by her seniors on Wednesday.

She was found inside the school toilet by a sweeper. She was then taken to a psychiatrist who administered her injection.

Her parents allege that her condition deteriorated soon after she was administered the injection and she later died. The cause of her death is under investigation.

The parents also demanded the arrest of the school principal for dereliction of duty. The principal later apologised to the agitating parents, assuring them the school will conduct a thorough investigation and punish the guilty.
