A lecturer at the Sri Chaitanya Junior College at SR Nagar in Hyderabad was booked by the police on Friday for caning four students and injuring them.

The accused has been identified as Dora Babu, a lecturer of Physics at Sri Chaitanya Junior College.

A group of students had secretly shot videos of the teacher and sent them to the media and uploaded it online, and the video went viral.

In the video, Dora Babu can be seen canning the students despite students pleading. One of the students is seen bleeding from his fingers.

It was also reported that some of the students suffered bruises on their hands and back.

Md Shareef, an MPC student studying in the college alleged that the teacher hit him several times for delaying his homework.

However, his father Mohammad Baba approached the college management and lodged a complaint. The students were reportedly afraid to file a complaint.

“We have been afraid to lodge a complaint as he might fail us in the exams. But, it became too much,” one of the student told Deccan Chronicle.

A complaint was lodged with SR Nagar asking police to take action against lecturer Dora Babu, Boppana Satyanarayana Rao who is the Chairman, Secretary Jhansi Lakshmi Bai, Director Seema Boppana, Sreecharan Veera Machineni and Sushma S Boppana for imposing corporal punishment. The police complaint was lodged by an NGO.

Child rights organizations and the police want the parents also to file complaints against the management, but they have not come forward.

“So far neither students nor their parents have approached us with a complaint against the teacher or college management. But we have lodged a case against the lecturer on the NGO's complaint after seeing the videos,” SR Nagar inspector Md Waheeduddin told Times of India.

The lecturer has been booked under Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act as well as IPC Section 324 which is voluntarily causing hurt with dangerous weapons or means.

The lecturer has been suspended by the college.
