Rishabh Singh, the class 2 student who was severely injured after his pool car fell into
a water-filled ditch in West Bengal's Hooghly district, died here on Saturday following an eight-day-long battle for life,
officials said. Rishabh and another student, Dibyangshu Bhagat, were
critically injured in the accident and were rushed to the SSKM Hospital in Kolkata. Doctors said that polluted water and mud
went into their lungs. Rishabh died in the early hours after a multi-organ
failure, officials of the hospital said, adding that his condition showed signs of no improvement.
Banerjee expressed grief and blamed "negligent and ruthless" driving for the death. He said laws should be made
more stringent to tackle drivers who have a record of violations.
The pool car, carrying 14 students, fell into a water-filled ditch in Polba while rushing to the school in
Chinsura on February 14. Dibyangshu's condition is currently stated to be
stable, according to hospital officials.
