A boy has died. The Parents are inconsolable. The principal has resigned taking Moral responsibility.
What about the Boys who were involved . Were they the villains in the piece.They too are 19-20 year olds. Did they cross all limits.
Something broke down somewhere. It doesn't look in any way premeditated , or planned to give such grave injury.
The authorities need to take the blame to a large extent, for not heeding the complaints. Perhaps if the boy had been away from the Hostel for sometime this could have been averted.
