A class 10 student died after a clash with his classmate at a private school in Hyderabad, police said.
Amir Siddiqui, a student of St. Joseph's Public School, died of brain injury at a private hospital on Wednesday, police said.
The incident occurred in the school premises during lunch hour on Tuesday but it came to light only after Siddiqui died at the hospital.
Police registered a case on the complaint of Siddiqui's parents, who reside in Masab Tank.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Kamalasan Reddy said Siddiqui and another student Shariyal had a fight at the school ground. Shariyal hit him on the head.
After first aid at the school, Siddiqui was shifted to Kamineni Hospital, where doctors on Tuesday night performed a surgery to remove clot in his brain. However, the boy did not recover and died on Wednesday morning.
The incident shocked Siddiqui's parents, who demanded immediate action against the student responsible for their son's death.
The DCP said they were analyzing the footage from CCTV cameras installed in the school before taking further action.
