It is alleged that a Class III student studying in the school drank water from the teacher’s bucket. Angered by this, the teacher locked the student in the room and beat him mercilessly. This made the child mad. The relatives of the victim student have complained about the matter to the DM after reaching the District Magistrate’s office. The student was so scared due to the beating of the teacher that he started crying in the District Magistrate’s office itself.
The whole matter pertains to Kalpi Tehsil Area Primary School Devpura. It is being told that the victim student studies in class three in the school. Whose age is 9 years. On Saturday, the student went to school, where he drank water from the bucket of the teacher posted in the school.

When the family members of the student reached the school after getting the information about the matter, the teacher chased them away by threatening them. The family members of the victim student reached the Collectorate today and complained about the matter to the District Magistrate Chandni Singh. The victim student told that he had drunk water from the teacher’s bucket to eat medicine, after which they took all the children out of the class and beat him up by locking him alone.

There is a need to ban these.
