Gurugram: The Ryan International School in Gurugram has finally agreed to bear all the expenses of the 7-year-old girl, Jiya, who slipped into a coma after being hit by a car on May 13 while she was being dropped on the wrong side of the road.
The girl’s parents had alleged negligence on the part of the school authorities and had protested in the principal’s office.
Earlier, the school had denied showing any negligence in the incident. But after big pressure from parents sending their children to the school, the administration has agreed to give the financial help.
Jiya’s parents have alleged that the school bus did not stop at the designated bus stop where her mother was waiting, but dropped the child much further ahead. They have also stated that there was no attendant present on the bus when the child was being dropped.
Jiya’s parents were angered when the school showed lack of ‘sensitivity’ towards the incident and refused to extend any help.
The seven-year-old is admitted in Gurgaon’s Medanta Hospital where her condition is said to be serious.
