A viral and shocking video has emerged showing two Kendriya Vidyalaya students in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, punching and kicking their schoolmate, who can be seen screaming for help.
Police have identified the brothers as Vishal alias Tanmay Singh and Vikki, studying in the 12th and 11th grades of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Muzaffarpur.
The assaulted kid has been identified as 12th grader Uttam Kumar, a resident of nearby Ramdayalu Nagar.
Kumar was assaulted allegedly because he had complained to the school authorities against two brothers.
The school is located at Gannipur in the heart of the district headquarters town, around 80km north of Patna.
The SHO of Kazi Muhammadpur police station, Mithilesh Kumar Jha, said an FIR had been lodged against the two students who are reported to be related to an absconding criminal.
The assaulted boy said he had been thrashed twice earlier. “I had verbally complained to the school authorities but nothing happened,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Janta Dal(United) raised questions asking why was the incident which took place on August 25 covered up for more than one and half months. The JDU(U) members also asked why no action was taken against the guilty students and the principal who tried to bury the matter.
