Noida: Two Class XI students of a prominent school here have been admitted to a hospital due to injuries to their limbs and torso.

There are contradictory reports on how the students of the Delhi Public School's Noida branch sustained the injuries.

As per The Indian Express, the family of one of the students has claimed that the boys were being ragged by their seniors when they got injured.

The Noida Police have, however, filed a case pertaining to a scuffle between the students.

 

“Based on the complaint filed by the student and his family, we have filed an FIR under IPC sections relating to a scuffle,” a police officer said, as per the daily.

The police said the incident happened on Monday night when Yashpratap Singh, 15, was coming back to his hostel after having dinner.

Singh’s father Arjun said it was not the first time that Yashpratap had been ragged.

“On May 5, a group of seniors had bullied him. They asked him to imitate animals and stand in various postures. His blood pressure shot up and his heart started to beat fast. He was admitted to Max Hospital in Noida after initial treatment at school health centre. He came back to the hostel only on Sunday,” Arjun Singh said, as per the newspaper.

The father added that Yashpratap was roughed up by a group of around 15 students on Monday night.

“Another Class XI student, Dhruv, tried to intervene but he also got beaten up. Yashpratap called his mother and told her about the incident. We rushed to the school but could not find him. The hostel warden refused to tell us where he was. Later, a security guard told us that an ambulance from Kailash Hospital had come to take two students. I figured my son was one of them,” the father stated.

According to doctors, the students had blunt injury marks on their upper arm, shoulders, knees and legs.

The boys were later discharged as the did not have any major injuries.
