A teacher allegedly beat up a nine-year-old Dalit child for touching a drinking water pot in a private school in Rajasthan’s Jalore district, leading to his death on Saturday, according to authorities. The teacher, 40-year-old Chail Singh, was detained by police and has been charged with murder and violations of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. A private school kid from Surana village named Indra Meghwal was assaulted on July 20. On Saturday, he passed away from his injuries at an Ahmedabad hospital. The state department of education has launched a probe into the incident, and the chairman of the Rajasthan SC Commission, Khiladi Lal Bairwa, directed that it be handled under the case officer’s scheme for quick investigation.

The youngster was severely beaten, according to Jalore’s Superintendent of Police Harsh Vardhan Agarwalla, who also noted that the incident’s stated cause—touching a water pot—remains under investigation. The policeman stated, “We have arrested the instructor Chail Singh and filed a case against him under section 302 of the IPC and the SC/ST Act. According to the boy’s father, he almost passed out and sustained injuries to his face and ear. The boy was brought to the district hospital, where he was later sent to a Udaipur hospital.

“He was kept in the Udaipur hospital for almost a week, but when there was no progress, we transferred him to Ahmedabad. But even there, his condition did not get any better, and on Saturday he passed away “Devaram Meghwal, the boy’s father, stated. Two officials have been tasked by the state department of education with investigating the situation and reporting back to the block education officer.
