Asaram Bapu hostel officials booked for negligenceAugust 1st, 2008 - 8:59 pm ICT by IANS
Bhopal, Aug 1 (IANS) A case of negligence was registered against a residential school run by spiritual leader Asaram Bapu in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhindwara town Friday, a day after a five-year-old boy was found dead in a bathroom in the hostel premises, police officials said. A probe has also been ordered into the incident by Rewa’s additional district magistrate Chandrashekhar Neelkanth. A special medical team from Bhopal is meanwhile being sent to Chhindwara, 275 km from here, to look into the medico-legal aspects of the child’s mysterious death.
According to the police, Vedant Kumar was found unconscious in the bathroom of the ‘gurukul’ in Parasia Road locality in Chhindwara - the second death of a student in the school in the past three days.
On Tuesday evening, another five-year-old, Ramkrishna Mohan Yadav, was found dead in similar conditions in the gurukul.
The deaths of the two children sparked anger among Bhopal residents, who took to the streets Thursday demanding the ashram’s closure. They pelted stones at the hostel building and the police had to use force to disperse the mob.
On Friday, many parents came to see their children studying in the school and a few even took them back home.
Two students Deepesh Vaghela, 10, and his cousin Abhishek Vaghela, 11, of a gurukul run by Aasaram Bapu’s ashram went missing July 4 in Ahmedabad. Their bodies were found from the nearby Sabarmati riverbed July 6. Allegations of shoddy police probe led to widespread protests and clashes in the city.
