Palwal, October 9: A 13-year-old student in Palwal, Haryana, reportedly jumped from the second floor of his school building in September. The incident was allegedly prompted by fear of his teachers, who had subjected him to physical punishment for taking sick leave. The incident occurred in September, and an FIR has been registered against the school principal, class teacher, and physical education instructor based on a complaint filed by the boy's father.

According to the Times of India report, the boy's family filed a complaint against the school principal, class teacher, and physical education instructor, leading to the registration of an FIR. According to the boy's father, the Class 8 student had been absent from school from September 14 to 17 due to illness, which was later diagnosed as typhoid.
