BHOPAL: A class 1 boy suf­fered burns af­ter a mid-day meal cook threw hot dal at him in a pri­mary school in Lu­dra vil­lage of tribal Din­dori district, about 400km west of Bhopal.

The par­ents of the child Prince Kumar al­leged that the cook Nemwati Bai de­lib­er­ately threw dal at him on Jan­uary 23 as she was an­gry with him for some rea­son.

How­ever, Nemwati de­nied this al­le­ga­tion, say­ing that the dal fell on Prince ac­ci­den­tally when he came run­ning.

She claimed that she had told her su­pe­ri­ors about the in­ci­dent, but a school teacher M L Ban­gar de­nied the same.

Prince’s fa­ther Ra­jku­mar Atesh­war said the school had not pro­vided any first aid or any treat­ment to Prince, and nei­ther did they in­form su­pe­ri­ors. Also, no ac­tion was taken by the local po­lice.

A day af­ter the in­ci­dent, un­able to bear the pain, the boy was taken to the Din­dori district hospi­tal, where the po­lice post took cog­ni­sance of the in­ci­dent and in­formed au­thor­i­ties.
