New Delhi, July 16 (IANS) A 13-year-old boy complaining of severe chest pain died on the way to a hospital here and his father suspects foul play, police said on Sunday.
Vishal, a class 5 student in a MCD school in Rohini, was taken to Ambedkar hospital late on Saturday after he complained of severe pain in his chest, said Deputy Commissioner of Police Rishi Pal. “He was referred to Safdarjung hospital in south Delhi. He died on the way to hospital.”
His father Rambabu said that when on Saturday, he returned from school, he was “looking tense and terrified”.
“But he did not tell us anything all day and went to sleep after having dinner. Around 2 a.m. he complained of chest pain. When he was being taken to Ambedkar hospital, he told his mother that he was brutally beaten up by three boys during school hours,” he said.
Rambabu, a resident of Begumpur in Rohini, on Sunday morning filed a complaint against three unknown boys for beating his son, police said.
“There was no external injury on the body as per the MLC (Medico-Legal Case). There was no Police Control Room (PCR) call as well. However, on the request of the father, a medical Board will be constituted to conduct postmortem examination,” Pal said.
