Kusum Kumari (14), a class 5 student had just cleared her class 4 from an English medium school, in Bali village.

Her father Ratan Lal, a chat vendor, withdrew her from the school as he could not afford to pay the fee for a private school and got her enrolled at a nearby government school.

After he remained unmoved despite her protests,on Wednesday, Kusum climbed the mobile tower situated barely a few metres away from the village and threatened to jump if her father refused to consider her demand.

The police officials, who reached the spot, tried to persuade her to come down. But she ignored their pleas and climbed further up.

Reports said that she finally came down with the help of two local officials after being assured that every effort would be made to persuade her father to allow her to continue at the English medium school.

The police let her off after asking her father to consider her demand.

“I earn barely enough to make the two ends meet...it is very difficult for me to pay the fee...the government school will not cost me much,” her father said.
