Students protest mysterious death of boy in Rajouri
JAMMU, Sep 13: Hundreds of students today staged a protest in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district against the mysterious death of a boy five days ago.

Himanshu Sharma, a class 10 student, was found unconscious shortly after leaving for his school in the field and was rushed to a local hospital where he was declared brought dead by the doctors.

Police officials said that students of various schools boycotted their classes and staged a demonstration at village Sari in the town, demanding an investigation into the sudden death of the boy.

The officials said the students dispersed off peacefully following an assurance by senior civil and police officials that police has started inquest proceedings in connection with the death of the boy and investigations are on.

Station House Officer (SHO) of Nowshera Police Station K K Raina, when contacted, confirmed protest by the students and said the postmortem report of the deceased is awaited.

"Three doctors conducted the autopsy of the boy after his death but the report is awaited," he said.

Meanwhile, state unit of Congress demanded an impartial investigation into the death of the student, a resident of Gagrote village.

"The people of the area have been agitating for high- level investigation into the mysterious death of the student.

Government should constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by a senior officer of integrity to bring out the truth in the incident," Chief spokesperson of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee Ravinder Sharma said in a statement here.

He said the students held the protest suspecting "foul play" behind the death of their classmate.

"The police administration should immediately respond to the situation and order a time-bound investigation," Sharma said.
