A Class One student was badly burnt on his face and chest after the mid-day meal cook at his school allegedly threw piping hot dal (lentil curry) at him when he asked for an extra serving last week.
The boy has burns on his face, cheeks, chest and back and is admitted to a hospital in Dindori.
During the lunch break at the primary school in Dindori, Prince Mehra reportedly asked for an second helping of dal. Nemvati Bai, the cook, was so furious with the boy’s request that she poured the dal on Prince, his grandmother alleged.
“Prince said when he asked for dal, she purposely threw it on him,” said Bhagwati Bai Mehra. The police have started an investigation. “The incident took place on January 23. They approached us on January 24,” quoted a police officer.
