A 13-year-old Indian-origin boy with a dairy allergy died here in the UK after suffering a severe reaction to a piece of cheese allegedly forced on him by a schoolmate, prompting the Scotland Yard to launch a probe.
Karanbir Cheema died on Sunday after suffering a severe reaction to a piece of cheese allegedly forced upon him at school last month. Another 13-year-old boy, a school-mate of Cheema, was arrested and questioned over the death which is being treated as a criminal matter. Karanbir’s condition was well known at school.
On June 28, he went to the school office to inform them of a reaction to some cheese and staff gave him medication kept specially for him but his condition quickly worsened and he was rushed to hospital. Doctors struggled to save his life but he died on Sunday.
