A 14-year-old student in Pakistan’s Sindh province has become paralysed, after being allegedly strangulated by a teacher four months ago, a media report said on Friday. Mohammed Ahmed, broke sensitive bones of his neck after he was strangulated. He lost his speech and he suffered a paralytic attack which left his limbs motionless. He is on a liquid diet as he can neither digest nor chew solid food, the Geo news reported.

Ahmed’s father, Ghullam Ahmed, a teacher said the incident occurred four months ago and a few teachers from his school in Larakana are responsible for bringing his son to this state. “On August 6 just after school reopened after summer vacations I received a phone call from station master GM Bhatti saying that my son had suffered fits,” Ghullam said. He claimed that when he reached the school his son was covered with injuries on his face, chest, head, back and lower limbs, the report said.

His medical treatment is possible in the US, doctors have said, but we don’t have the resources to take him there, Ghullam said. “I have six daughters, and I’ve spent all my savings on Ahmed,” he said. Meanwhile, Education Secretary, government of Sindh took note of the incident and has promised to form a medical board and bear expenses for the treatment, the report said.
