A 10-year-old student, who immolated himself in his house allegedly over fear that his class teacher would punish him for not completing homework, succumbed to burns in a hospital today, police said.
The fourth standard student of a private school was admitted to hospital with burns last week, police said.
It was alleged that his class teacher had threatened him with severe punishment if he did not complete homework.
