BENGALURU: A seven-year-old girl, who was under treatment for severe burns after falling into hot sambar vessel, succumbed to her injuries. The girl identified as Mahanthamma Shivappa Jamadar, a second-class student, slipped on the sambar vessel prepared as part of the midday meal. Mahanthamma is a student of Chinamagera Govt Primary School in Afzalpur taluk of Kalaburagi. The incident happened last Thursday.

Mahanthamma, who suffered 50 percent burns, was taken to GIMS in Kalaburagi and then was shifted to Gulbarga Institute of Medical Sciences, Kalburagi for specialist treatment. The girl was shifted to Basaveshwara Hospital in Kalburagi on Friday following the demand of her parents to get expert treatment for her daughter.


Mahanthamma’s health deteriorated and she was admitted to Victoria Hospital in Bengaluru on Saturday, but her life could not be saved. The police registered a case on the complaint filed by her mother Sangeetha. The police have registered a case against the kitchen staff and head master of the school. Sangeetha has made serious allegations against the school in the incident.


The complaint said the school authorities were not able to control the students who gathered in the school kitchen for lunch. Sangeetha also alleged that her daughter fell in the sambar vessel following a stampede. The deputy director of public education said the incident will be taken seriously and necessary steps will be taken. He said that two teachers of the school have been suspended and one has been fired.
