    THE DEVASTATED father of a 13-year-old boy who died after an allergic reaction when cheese was reportedly flicked in his mouth has revealed how he watched his son die.

    Karanbir Cheema, 13, tragically died two weeks after the reaction and may have been targeted by bullies due to his condition, friends claimed in the wake of the teen’s death, reports The Sun.

    Police have arrested a 13-year-old boy on suspicion of attempted murder and homicide cops have since been called in.

    Karanbir, known to pals as Karan, died on Sunday at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital after 12 days in intensive care.

    He suffered an allergic reaction after an incident at William Perkin C of E High School in West London, on June 28.

    One pupil tweeted on the day: “How can two idiots in my school stuff cheese down someone’s throat — knowing that they’re allergic to it, where’s the logic.”

    But a fellow student said: “A boy in the class bought himself a cheese sandwich and another boy asked to have a piece of it.

    “He gave the cheese to him thinking that he would eat it but instead he flicked it at Karan.

    “People are saying that it hit his lip, which he then licked by accident.”

    London’s Homicide and Major Crime Command were still investigating the tragedy which was being treated as “unexplained.”

    They are still waiting to learn the cause of death, with a post-mortem scheduled to take place today.

    The school’s executive head teacher Dame Alice Hudson said Karan had a “number of allergies” and staff tried to give him medication at the office before the ambulance arrived.

    Medication was kept in the school’s office especially for Karan but it was not successful in treating the reaction, she said.

    “Karanbir Cheema, known as Karan, was a popular Year 8 student at the school,” she said.

    “He had many friends who are devastated at his death, as are the staff.”
