PESHAWAR: A girl student of grade three died after allegedly falling off the school`s stairs in Hazarkhawni neighborhood of the city on Monday, police and locals said.[TOP]
A police official at the Yakatut police station told Dawn that the incident took place at the government girls primary school number 1, Hazarkhwani. He said that an 11-year-old student of class-Ill fell off the stairs and died.
However, a relative who identified the child as Mahnoor said that apparently the girls in the class fought with each other and Mahnoor crashed onto the floor after receiving a push.
He said following the fall, she stahed bleeding from her nose. He said the school staff called a technician running medical store who asked them to shift the girl to hospital. He said that later they called Rescue 1122 who shifted her to the hospital; however, she died there.
The relative of the victim demanded action against the school`s head and teachers for neglecting their responsibility of maintaining discipline, which led to the death of her niece.
Yaktut police were yet to register an FIR in the case.
