Boy jumps off fourth floor residence in Ashok Vihar
NEW DELHI: A Class XI student is currently in hospital after he jumped from his fourth floor residential apartment in Ashok Vihar and sustained serious injuries.
On August 16, around 4.30 pm, a woman in the neighbourhood of the victim Kush heard a big thud near his residence.
She and the local security guard alerted the locals, who rushed to the backside of the house to find the teenager Kush fallen on the ground.
He was immediately rushed to a local hospital, from where he was referred to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
With no reason to believe that the notorious Blue Whale Game drove the boy to take the extreme step, police suspect that a change in school was the main reason.
Preliminary investigation suggests that the boy was not able to adjust to the environment of the new school.
"He used to score brilliantly in high school. Later, his parents got him transferred from Bal Bharti School to Montfort Senior Secondary School in Ashok Vihar," said a neighbour.
Before he jumped off the roof of his building, Kush had locked the door to the terrace and left his spectacles and mobile phone on the floor.
Doctors at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said the boy has suffered injuries to his spinal cord, and multiple fractures on his hands and legs.
"The boy's phone is locked. We can find out more about the reasons only after the phone is unlocked. Till now, we only reasons to believe that change of school was the reason," said Milind Dumbere, DCP, North West Delhi.
