The video of an Indian American being bullied in Texas is currently going viral on social media.
Shaan Pritmani, a student of the Coppell Independent School District (Coppell ISD), can be seen bullied by a white fellow classmate, who tries to strangle Shaan and get Shaan to get up from his place.
When Shaan is seen trying to refuse his classmate’s actions, Shaan can be seen strangulated by the other boy, who pushes his elbow into Shaan, and forces Shaan to get up from where he’s seated.
The video is being condemned by everyone, with a change.org petition being filed as well, compelling the school authorities to take the necessary action against the perpetrator.
Shaan’s mother, Sonika Kukreja, in a recent statement, said that her son was being punished for what happened, with the school authorities calling her and blaming her son for getting into an altercation with his fellow student.
She even said that her son received a 3-day ISS, while the other boy received just a 1-day ISS.
