Chandra Shekhar Azad condemned the incident
Chandra Shekhar Azad took to Twitter and wrote: “The country is celebrating the nectar festival of independence. On the other hand, when he touched the pot of water, he was hit so badly that he lost his life.”
He continued: “Even after 75 years of independence, a 9-year-old Dalit child in Jalore fell victim to the caste system. We don’t even have the freedom to touch the water pot! Then why are you hitting the wrong slogan of freedom?”
देश आजादी का अमृत महोत्सव मना रहा है। ”

Was taken to many hospitals but died
According to the family of the deceased child, Indra Kumar was thirsty. He accidentally drank water from “another” pot. Seeing this, the teacher Chhail Singh called him casteist words and hit him severely.
This caused an internal injury to his right ear. Because of severe ear pain, Indra went to his father’s shop, took medicine from the doctor’s office, and went home. However, when the boy’s pain became unbearable, he was taken to various hospitals. They took the child to Bajrang Hospital Bagoda, Aastha Hospital Bhinmal, Triveni Hospital Bhinmal, Karni Hospital Deesa Mehsana, Geetanjali Udaipur and Civil Hospital Ahmedabad. The boy lost his life today. His legal guardians informed him that they were seeking treatment and he was therefore belated in reporting the entire incident.
