JAIPUR: A girl student in Jaipur rural allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the fourth floor of her school building. The father of the deceased has accused the school management of harassing and abetting his daughter to take her own life. The school principal, PTI, and other teachers have been named in the FIR registered by the father for abetment to suicide. 

Shravan Lal Meena, a resident of Luniawas in Jaipur, filed a report at the Kanota police station, stating that his daughter Radhika Meena, who was studying in the 11th grade at a private school located on Sumel Road, Bagrana, had been severely beaten by the school principal, vice principal, PTI teacher, class teacher, and other teachers. 

They allegedly used abusive language and threatened her with failure in the exams. Distressed by this, Radhika reportedly jumped from the fourth floor of the school and died on the way to SMS Hospital.

The school administration had initially informed Radhika’s family that she was hurt and taken to Akhila Hospital. However, when they reached the hospital, Radhika was in critical condition, and she later passed away. 

The school staff allegedly refused to show the CCTV footage of the incident and provided wrong information that Radhika had fallen down the stairs.

The police have registered a case against the school administration, and statements of children and teachers are being taken. 

The administration has been asked to provide the CCTV footage, but it has not been received yet. Legal action will be taken soon. The father has also alleged that the school administration has threatened him, stating that taking action against them will defame him.
