FAISALABAD: A fifth class student’s arm was fractured when he was allegedly beaten by a teacher on Friday. The boy was taken to the hospital, where doctors treating him said he was now out of danger.
Millat Town police said Aamir Sohail, a resident of Millat Town, was beaten by his teacher, Sadia, for asking her to go over the lesson again.
The boy told police that she beat him and twisted his arm accusing him of wasting her time. He said she insisted that he apologise while holding his ears. When the boy appeared close to fainting, she stopped and left. Some of his class fellows informed his parents.
His father, Sohail Ahmad, said Aamir lay on the ground and was crying in pain when he reached the school. The boy was taken to Allied Hospital’s emergency ward, where Dr Ali Naqi, who was treating him, said that the boy had suffered several fractures on the arm.
Later, the parents registered a complaint against the teacher with the Millat Town police and demanded strict action against her and the school management for allowing corporal punishment.
Station House Officer Inspector Abid Zafar told The Express Tribune that there were also other injuries on the boy’s body. He said police had requested a medical examination of the boy at Allied Hospital.
He said if found guilty, the teacher will be punished in accordance with the law.
