Muzaffarpur: An FIR was lodged against two Kendriya Vidyalaya students in Bihar on Thursday after a video of them assaulting their classmate on the school premises went viral on social media.

As per a report, the complaint was registered with the Kazi Mohammadpur police station on the written statement of the principal of the school. The school is located in Gannipur locality of the north Bihar town which is about 71 km away from Patna.

The commission of Kendriya Vidhalaya sangathan has been asked to enquire about the matter and submit a report by the Union minister of state for human resource development Upendra Kushwaha.

Superintendent of police (city) Ashish Anand said, “We are verifying the authenticity of the video. The video will be sent for forensic test. We will be able to say more about the incident only after getting the forensic report.”

A teacher whom the SP did not wish to name had earlier reported to the principal on the day of the incident, but he did not act on the information. 

In the video that has surfaced on social media, shows two boys in school uniform ruthlessly assaulting the boy in a classroom in presence of other students.
