“His friends said that he kept rubbing his chest and then started vomiting and then collapsed there itself. By the time he was shifted to a hospital, he was no more,” Inspector P Krishna said.
Officials said after the ball hit him, Vamsikrishna may have stopped breathing due to the impact. But as the children around him did not know what to do, precious seconds were lost in reviving him leading to his death.
A case under section 174 CrPC has been registered, after the boy’s father lodged a complaint, police said. “We are collecting evidence (by recording statements of eyewitnesses) and will finalise the case,” a police officer said.
