A six-year-old boy fell into a pot of hot vegetable curry while standing in a queue for a midday meal in a primary school in Bahraich district of Uttar Pradesh, sustaining serious burn injuries, the police said on Tuesday. 

The incident took place on Monday in Hemriya Kutti gram panchayat area. 

Shivam, a student of class 1, was standing in the queue for a midday meal in a village primary school when he stumbled and fell into the pot, the police said after the boy's father filed a complaint with the police. 

The boy's father alleged that the school staff neither rushed Shivam to a hospital nor informed his family about the incident.

Upon returning home, Shivam fell unconscious and was rushed to a hospital where he is undergoing treatment, the father claimed.

On the basis of the father's complaint, a case has been registered against the cook and teachers of the school, and a probe is on, the police said.

Three teachers, including a lady teacher, have been suspended after preliminary inquiry and action has been initiated against the cook, Bahraich's Basic Shiksha Adhikari Amarkant Singh said.
