The parents of a Class 4 boy studying at Ryan International School in Ludhiana’s Jamalpur area, alleged that he was thrashed with a stick and repeatedly slapped by two teachers on Thursday. The parents also alleged that one of the teachers threatened to beat him up again if he informed them about the thrashing.

Jaswinder Singh, resident of Ahata Mohammad Tayar area, said that his son Mansukh (10) was allegdly beaten by a male and female teacher after a fight with another student.

Singh said: “My son had a fight with another child on Wednesday. The teacher called the mothers of both the children and my wife also went. On Thursday, he was again thrashed in school with stick and slapped repeatedly. He was not telling this to us. He did not say a word. It was only when he was changing his clothes that we noticed red marks on his entire body including neck, hands, legs, chest and back. He was beaten by two teachers including a male and a female.”

“The female teacher also threatened my son that if he narrated the incident to anyone, he will be beaten up again,” alleged the father. “When I asked him about the red marks, he broke down and started crying his heart out. Then he told us that two teachers slapped him repeatedly and thrashed him with a stick on legs, hands, back and chest.”

A medical examination of the child was done at Civil Hospital Thursday evening. The parents also approached Jamalpur police station to file an FIR.

Avtar Singh, SHO Jamalpur police station said that the statement of the parents is being recorded and preliminary probe has been started.

Gurpal Kaur Anand, principal of the school, dismissed the allegations.

“It is absolutely wrong and baseless allegation. Nobody touched the child. The child had pushed another child yesterday so hard that he broke his tooth. I counselled the child and then taking disciplinary action I also suspended him for a month. It is the repercussion of my action against the child that now baseless allegations are being put by the parents. Only parents would know how the child is now having marks on his body. But in our school, none of the teachers touched him,” she said.

    A Chain reaction. Finally victim is a small child. One need to find the root cause of this barbaric action. Actually when a teacher or any individual becomes more aggressive one has to understand that this horrifying nature must have borrowed or inherited or behaved under unsound ambience.

      Unfortunate. They are not teachers. They are jallad. These teachers must be jailed.

            The parents are s that they are sending their children to such a rotten school, if they love their child they should send him/her to another school.
