Jaipur: A 14-year-old boy, identified as Nitant Raj Lata – who was a class 9 student at St Xavier’s School in Nevta – committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling fan at a room in his house on April 26.
The matter came to light when the family members registered an FIR with Sodala police station on Wednesday, accusing the school’s physical training instructor (PTI) of harassment and inciting the student to commit suicide. The student reportedly left a suicide note in which he has mentioned the PTI.
Nitant was a resident of Krishna Vihar Colony in Sodala. According to the family members, Nishant was one of the class toppers.
The school administration informed the family members on April 19 that he was not showing up at school regularly. Nishant then started going to school. On April 25, the family members received a call . They were summoned to the school for a meeting with Nitants’ teachers.
The family members said that Nishant looked depressed and when her mother inquired what was bothering him, he allegedly accused the PTI of harassing him. He reportedly told the family members that the PTI humiliated him in front of his classmates and other children many times.
On April 25, Nishant watched a cricket match on TV with his grandfather and then went to his room. The family members found him hanging the next morning.
He was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead by the doctors. Family members registered an FIR with Sodala police station.
“An FIR has been registered against the PTI of St. Xavier’s School, Nevta. We are investigating the case. How the boy was being harassed is a matter of investigation,” Sunil Kumar Sharma, SHO, Sodala police station told The PinkCity Post.
The family members were inconsolable.
“We had booked a car of a particular brand recently because Nitanat liked it so much. The car was to be delivered by the dealer on Wednesday, but Nitant would never be able to ride in his favorite car now,” said Rajkumar Lata, a manager at Axis Bank.
Nitant was also looking forward to a visit to Mumbai.
“He was excited because we booked a flight. He had never been in a flight, so he thought it would be a great experience. We were to leave on May 19,” said the father.
In the suicide note, Nitant wrote many emotional lines. He wrote that everything that belonged to him should now go to his cousin Kavin, even the love. In the next page, he wrote: Need Justice, Thanks Jio (PTI of school).
