During the investigation, it was found that on February 1 of this year, in the Shaykhantakhur district, G.B and S.N., pupils of school No. 132, kicked a piece of ice on the ground towards a vehicle which was being driven by F.N., 11th grade student of school No. 113.

After that, the 11th graders verbally threatened the children who kicked the ice block that they would take them to the DIA. The children went home saying that they would not do this again.

“Currently, the children are safe and sound with their parents,” the report said.

A preventive interview was held with the parents of schoolchildren who do not have the right to drive a car.
