Police told NDTV that a computer teacher scolded the 9th standard student for watching porn on a computer. The boy was asked to give a letter of apology.
Later the boy, police sources said, went to the chemistry lab and was seen on CCTV drinking a chemical. He later went to the common toilet and locked himself in. This incident took place around 1:30 pm.
At the 4 pm attendance call, the boy was reported missing but his absence was not followed up by the authorities. It was only after the 6.30 pm roll call, when he still did not appear, his father who was working at the school as a temporary hockey coach was informed.
His distraught family protested outside the hospital and were joined by locals who punctured the tyres of the ambulance. A complaint was filed by the family and police sources say they registered a complaint of murder as that was what the family demanded.
Police say that the situation in the area is now calm and that the family has also been briefed and explained about the probe.
