A school teacher in Uttar Pradesh was thrashed by a group of boys and their guardians in Soraw area near Prayagraj, according to news agency ANI.
The incident occurred on Tuesday during a medical camp at Balkaranpur’s Adarsh Janta Inter College, where the teacher reprimanded a group of boys for allegedly misbehaving with some female students.
Gangapar SSP Nagendra Singh told ANI that a case had been registered and searches were being conducted to nab the accused students.
“Some male students fell, advertently or inadvertently, on some girls during the health check-up. The students later went to their homes and brought their family members who brutally beat the teacher with sticks,” Singh was quoted as saying by ANI.
