Warangal Rural: A 5-year-old UKG student named Banoth Siddu of Ameenpeta thanda in Nekkonda was beaten up severely by his teacher Pushpalatha for not doing homework on Friday. The teacher assaulted him so brutally that cane marks can be seen on his legs, hands and back.
Enraged after seeing the injuries on the boy’s body, his parents and relatives went to school and talked to the management on Saturday. The boy’s father, B. Ravi, said they would approach the police. “Punishment is not the way to teach a small kid how to do homework. We send our kids hoping they would be given education but this kind of behaviour by teachers is not acceptable,” he said.
However, village heads intervened and asked Ravi not to file a complaint with the police. The school correspondent Ashok apologised to the parents and said he takes responsibility for the incident and promised such things would not happen again in the school.
