13-year-old boy dies of seizure attack in school washroom in Delhi

In a tragic incident, a 13-year-old boy died inside a government schoool in Delhi's Rohini area on Friday. The deceased was a student of class 8 and allegedly died due to a seizure attack inside the washroom of the school. Following the incident, the Delhi BJP has demanded a high-level investigation into the death of the boy. 

The party has also asked the Delhi government to give a compensation of Rs 10 lakh to the boy's family.

Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said the death of the boy in the school toilet is not only sad but also shocking. 

He further alleged that there was no doctor or medical facility available in the school, whereas according to Rule 38 of the Delhi School Education Rules, 1973, it is mandatory to appoint medical officer and provide related facilities in government schools in Delhi.

"If the required medical facilities were made available to the student in time, his life could well have been saved. He asked why an FIR was not lodged by the administration in the matter," Gupta said.

"Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Education Minister Manish Sisodia are maintaining silence on the incident," he said.
