After the boy, in a local TV channel, claimed that he could not attend Free Progress Academy, Konthoujam due to extreme poverty, Principal of the school L Indrakumar on Saturday personally came to the house of Sanathoi at Khaidem Mayai leikai to help him.

The Principal announced that the school will take full responsibility for educating the poverty ridden boy upto class X free of cost.

He also announced that the school will provide free uniforms and books to the boy.

If the boy wishes to attend school from home, School will bear his transportation charge . if he wishes to stay in school, charges for it will be borne by the school, said the Principal.

As Sanathoi is playing a pivotal role in serving his ailing father, school will provide him Rs. 500 every month towards buying of medicine, he said adding that he would extend his best support to realize the dream of the boy to become a Police officer.
