The 10-year-old boy reportedly bought kerosene for Rs 20, went to school, skipped the morning prayers where his other schoolmates were gathered and set fire to himself inside a classroom.
When asked why he did this, he said, "The teacher used to punish us and she used to remove my trousers, so I tried to commit suicide." He is undergoing treatment in a hospital at Solapur.
Apparently, no case has been filed against anyone as yet. Even the parents have not filed a complaint against the teacher or school.
