Hyderabad: A Class V student of Condor I school in Hayathnagar was allegedly beaten up black and blue by the school chairman. The incident happened when the kid, J. Shashanth Reddy, tore a notice that was put up on the notice board. Parents lodged a complaint with the police. But the school management has denied the allegation. Meanwhile, the AP Balalahakkula Sangham demanded a criminal case against the school chairman.
Police said that J. Shashanth Reddy, a resident of Vinayaknagar, on Tuesday accidentally pulled down a poster placed on the notice board and tore it into pieces during lunch break while playing along with his friends.
