Hyderabad: The State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has directed the Hyderabad district medical and health officer and the West Zone DCP to submit a detailed report on the death of Class III student Hardhik Jena, of Glendale Academy.

Hardhik who was injured while playing in his classroom, did not regain consciousness after surgery at Olive Hospital on January 28.

A medical negligence case was registered against the hospital. On Saturday, the parents of Hardhik and the Glendale Academy Parents’ Association, staged a protest at Dharna Chowk demanding action against the doctors who performed surgery on Hardhik.


On January 27, nine-year-old Hardhik suffered a serious injury on his left wrist after falling on a window pane. The wound was nearly 1.5 inch deep and 3 inch long. He was admitted to Olive hospital at Mehdipatnam, where doctors performed surgery on him. Hardhik’s parents said that in spite of the injury he was able to walk and talk.

“All reports said his condition was normal. After the surgery doctors said it was successful and that he was conscious and we could talk to him after some time, but he did not regain consciousness after the surgery,” said the boy’s father Mr Ashish Jena.

The parents alleged that the negligence of the doctors killed their son. They also lodged a complaint with SCPCR.
