The deceased reportedly had climbed the hill near his Pandarguda village in Padmapur block for better internet connectivity. While attending the online class, a huge stone, on which the class 8 student of a Cuttack school was sitting, slipped, and he came rolling down the hill with the stone falling on his right leg and crushing it. He was rushed to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries.
