New Delhi, April 24 (IANS) Akkriti Bhatia, a Class 12 student of Modern School Vasant Vihar in the national capital, died of asphyxiation stemming from an asthma attack, according to the post mortem examination report, police said Friday.
“The post mortem examination report hints Akkriti died of asphyxia. It seems to be a natural death but we are awaiting her viscera report and any conclusion can be reached only after going through the viscera report,” a police officer told IANS.
Asphyxia is a condition of severely deficient supply of oxygen to the body that arises from being unable to breathe normally.
The officer hinted that they did not see any criminal negligence in the case and the matter is under investigation.
Akkriti had suffered an asthma attack Monday in her school and died while she was rushed to hospital.
Akkriti’s parents have filed a complaint against the school authorities blaming school principal Goldy Malhotra for delaying medical help to the girl.
