Mid-day meal cook throws hot dal on class I student after he asks for more
In a shocking incident, a mid-day meal cook allegedly threw hot dal at a class I boy after he asked for a second helping, as per a report published in NDTV on Tuesday.

This act of brutality took place at a government-run primary school located in Ludra village in Madhya Pradesh's Dindori district, where the boy whose name is Prince Mehra, asked the mid-day meal cook Nemvati Bai for another serving of dal.

The incident happened on January 23 during the lunch break, when the primary school children were having their mid-day meal. The boy requested the cook for a second serving. After his request, the accused cook got angry and poured the steaming hot dal on him, the boy's grandmother alleged.

"Prince said when he asked for dal, she purposely threw it on him," Bhagwati Bai Mehra (victim's grandmother) was quoted as saying by NDTV.

Soon after this incident, the boy was taken to a hospital in Dindori district by the school administration after he severely suffered burns on his face, cheeks, chest and back. However, his condition is stable now, according to the report.

In this case, an investigation is being conducted by the police, who have assured that a strict action will be taken against the accused.

This is not the first time when the mid-meal related cases have made headlines in BJP-ruling Madhya Pradesh. Earlier, a school in Chhatarpur's Surajpura came to light after it was found that children were being made to drink canal water, eat salt and chapati in mid-day meal during their lunch break.
