The school also took strong action on this alleged mistreatment of a white American student and suspended her from school for 1 day while the Indian-American student was suspended from school for 3 days. According to the information received, the incident is on May 11 and it happened during lunch at Coppell Middle School North in Texas. Sonika Kukreja, the mother of the victim Indian-American student, says, 'It was terrible, I could not sleep for three nights. It felt like I was suffocating. I cried many times seeing this.'
Despite this, the school administration punished the Indian-American student and suspended him from school for three days, while the student who did the bullying was suspended for only one day.' Kukreja further said that I am seriously concerned about the safety of my children and the message I get from the school board and the police department for not taking action in this matter. We want every child to be treated equally. Bullying should be banned in the school. Seeing this video, the general public has also got angry and is asking about taking action in this matter.
