According to family members of the Class X student,the boy had questioned the teacher for beating him with a stick.

The boy’s elder brother Lalit said: “The teacher hit my brother on the arm for creating a racket in class. When he questioned the teacher,he got infuriated and complained to the principal. The principal came and took my brother out of the class and both began beating my brother till he fell unconscious.”

The boy was taken to a private hospital. “The school authorities did not inform us about the incident. After my brother regained consciousness,he told doctors to inform us and we were called,” Lalit said.
