A student of Class II was allegedly beaten mercilessly by the school principal for failing to read the words written on the board. The incident took place at a school in Ramsinghpur in Hyderabad on Saturday, according to reports.

The seven-year-old, a student of Nehru Children’s High School, Karwan, suffered bruises on his back. The victim’s father lodged a case against the school principal Suresh Singh.

When questioned about inflicting injuries on the boy, Singh remained defiant and told Times of India, “He did so because the child was incompetent, despite his mother being a teacher in the same school. This is absurd,” a relative told TOI.

Speaking to TOI, the boy’s father Pramod said, “My son told us that his principal asked him to read out some words written on the board. However, he could not understand. The principal subjected him to severe punishment by beating him mercilessly on his back. He suffered injuries all over his back."

A case under section 341 (wrongful restraint) and 323 (inflicting injuries) including Juvenile Justice Act has been filed against the accused in the Tappachabutra police station, reported Deccan Chronicle.

However, no arrests were made in this regard.

Earlier in April, in another incident, a student of Vishwa Bharathi High School, Rasoolpura was allegedly beaten up by the Principal for coming late to the school.

The student sustained injuries on his back. The boy had alleged that the principal didn’t stop caning him until he bled.
