Police booked a teacher and school management for driving a Grade 10 boy to suicide.

Moin Khan, 16, has been asked to take time off after he was caught cheating on an exam on Tuesday. Khan snuck off the school campus, climbed onto the terrace of a 14-story apartment in Balaji Layout, and jumped to his death.

Sampigehalli Jurisdictional Police have registered a case of inciting suicide against the teacher and management of Hegdenagar Public School following Khan’s death.

In his complaint to the police, Khan’s father, Noor Mohammed, blamed the teacher and school management for his son’s death. Police investigated a case based on the murder of Mohammed
complaint.

A police team visited Hegdenagar Public School on Wednesday and questioned the teacher and other staff. He also went to the apartment complex to record statements from residents who tried to save him and saw him jump to his death.

Apartment security guards said they initially did not arrest Khan because he was wearing school uniform and accompanying his friend whose family resides in the apartment. They said they were confused.

“We will take action depending on the results of the ongoing investigation,” another officer said. Khan’s body was released to the family on Wednesday after an autopsy at Dr BR Ambedkar Medical College Hospital.
