A 13-YEAR-old boy has died after he was allegedly beaten by his teacher over pending school fees, his family claim.
Chrijesh Vishwakarma, who studied at Pandit Brahma Dutt school in Chailahi, Nepal, passed away in hospital on Wednesday – around a week after the alleged assault took place.

According to the Times of India, the boy’s family said he suffered several injuries to his nose, face and hands after he returned home on August 8.
Chrijesh was soon taken to a local district hospital in neighbouring India where he later died.
His uncle, Shiv Kumar, claims that Chrijesh had sustained the injuries after being “thrashed” by his schoolteacher over unpaid fees.
He told cops: “On August 8, Chrijesh returned home with a bleeding nose and swollen face. I was at his house to meet his mother and asked how he suffered the injuries.
“Chrijesh replied that he was thrashed by his teacher over the non payment of fees.
“We immediately took him to the nearest government hospital in Bhinga.
“However, the doctors did not admit him and referred him to the district hospital in Bahraich.”
The victim’s brother, Rajesh Vishwakarma, added that the boy had paid the outstanding fees, but the teacher was unaware.
He said: “My brother was beaten by his teacher because of school fees – Rs 250/month.
“I had given it online but the master didn’t know and my brother was beaten up brutally.
“His hand was fractured and there was internal bleeding… he killed him.”
Police said on Friday they had charged the accused teacher on charges of culpable homicide.
A post-mortem of the teen’s body is currently underway to establish a cause of death.
State police officer Arvind K Maurya said: “A 13-year-old student of class 3, who went to a school near his village under Sirsiya Police Station limits, died in a hospital in Bahraich on Aug 17.
“Complain by his uncle states that he was beaten by his school teacher on Aug 8. Case has been filed and probe is underway,”
He added: “The statements of other children present in the school when Chrijesh was thrashed will also be taken.
“The accused teacher will be grilled.”
