In a shocking incident, as many as 14 students were injured after they were mercilessly beaten up by their teacher for not able to answer a question. The incident was reported from Sunamuhi Government Upper Primary School under Basudevpur block in Bhadrak district.
Swinging into action, the district administration suspended the accused teacher Kalpatharu Mallick.
According to sources, the school Maths Teacher was teaching the students of Class VIII yesterday. During the class, he asked some geometry questions which the students could not answer.
This infuriated him so much that he beat up the students mercilessly, injuring 14 students. The matter came to the fore after the students brought the matter to the notice of their guardians.
Angry parents stormed into the school premises and created ruckus. The injured students were admitted to Basudevpur Community Health Centre (CHC). While no police complaint was lodged in this connection, police have detained the teacher, reports said.
“He was angry from the beginning. He was so angry that he started asking questions as soon as he entered the classroom. He did not even give up time to answer. Before we could answer, he began beating up everyone. He has broken the head of many students,” a student alleged.
“They were creating nuisance in the classroom without studying. So, I beat them. But, I haven’t beaten them so much. They are just exaggerating,” the Maths teacher alleged.
