Bihar: School director lynched after students' death


Patna, June 29: In a shocking incident in Nalanda district in Bihar, the director of a local school was lynched by angry mob after two students, aged 7 and 8, drowned in a water body close to the school premises on Sunday.

Residents of Nirpur village destroyed school property and set the two room school on fire after the bodies of the two students were found in a ditch near the 'DPS' school (which is not affiliated or connected to the more renowned chain of schools in India).


Director Devendra Prasad succumbed to his injuries at a Patna Medical College where he was rushed in a critical medical condition.

Superintendent of Police, Nalanda said,"This school is a two room establishment. As of now, I am not sure if it is even affiliated to any board. I have asked the district education officer to find out".

According to the SP, the two children were part of a large group comprising 8 children who had gone there to relieve themselves and two of them slipped and fell into the ditch.

It had rained heavily that day and the water level had risen there. The SP said that the police faced stiff resistance from the villagers there.

"Six policemen were injured while trying to quell the mob", said an officer. "When the acting SHO of Nalanda could not control the situation, a larger police party headed by a deputy SP was rushed to the spot", he added.
