The News Minute | March 19, 2015 | 12:30 pm IST Two students in Andhra Pradesh were hospitalised after a teacher allegedly asked them to strip and kneel in the sun as corporal punishment for not doing the homework. The students, who are brothers, collapsed after bearing the heat for three hours. The incident took place at the Mandal Parishad Primary government school in Visakhapatnam's Maradapalem area on Thursday. Two teachers, Rani Kumari and Anil Kumar have been suspended and the district administration is currently conducting an inquiry. This comes within days of a 13-year-old student in AP alleging that her school principal forced her to undergo a pregnancy test based on suspicions that she was having an affair with a teacher.
