The Deccan Gymkhana police on Monday registered an offence against a teacher of Loyala school in connection with the incident in which a cadet was hit by a bullet during a firing practice at the National Cadet Corps (NCC) Group headquarters on Senapati Bapat Road on February 1.
"An offence under Section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the teacher, Amod Anil Ghanekar, who is also the NCC officer. We have not yet arrested him. There was sufficient information obtained during investigation to lodge an offence against Ghanekar. Investigation is on," said senior inspector Manohar Joshi of the Deccan Gymkhana police station.
Police said 14-year-old Parag Devendra Ingle stood up "all of a sudden" when his NCC teacher was imparting firing training to the cadets from a 0.22 mm rifle at the NCC Group headquarters.
A batch of cadets had lay down on the ground to take position for firing training. Just when Ghanekar pulled the trigger showing how to fire, Ingle suddenly stood up and the bullet hit him in the head, said the police.
He was admitted to the Command Hospital in Wanavdi where his condition is reported to be critical.
