School Fees Unpaid After Notes Ban, Hyderabad Boy Commits Suicide

The Hyderabad school allegedly harassed and punished the student every day over unpaid fees.


Hyderabad:  A 16-year-old boy in Hyderabad hanged himself on Wednesday after allegedly being harassed by his school as his fees were not paid on time.

The boy was a student of the Class 9 at Ifham Talent High School. He hanged himself after returning home on Wednesday evening.

The boy's elder brother said the family had been unable to pay his school fees for two months due to the government ban on 500 and 1000 rupee notes.

The school management, he said, was punishing his brother every day. The boy was allegedly being humiliated in front of his classmates and juniors and forced to stand outside the classroom.

Local leaders have demanded that the police file a case against the school management.

Demanding that a compensation of Rs 2 lakh be paid to the family, Amjed Ullah Khan of Majlis Bachao Tehreek has criticised the non-payment of fees promised as part of fee-waiver scheme by the TRS Govt.

Mr Khan said had the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government released the funds for payment of fees to minority students, the boy would have been alive.
