His parents were called, who took him to the hospital. Where the doctors declared him dead. According to media reports, according to Principal Smitaben, when the victim fell, her classmates and teachers massaged her hands and feet to bring her to consciousness. At the same time, Riya’s parents allege that their daughter is healthy and is not suffering from any disease. The management said that the prescribed sweaters were not sufficient to protect the children in the cold wave. At the moment, it is too early to say that Riya’s death is due to cold wave.
