Kasaragod: The police on Saturday booked a teenager for the attempted murder of his teacher.
The plus-two student allegedly beat him up for stopping malpractice in the model exam.
The teacher had his shoulder bone broken and impaired hearing. The tragic incident happened at Chemnad Jamath HSS on Friday.
The teacher, Dr Baby Jose, 44, of Thimiri in Cheruvathur, is undergoing treatment.
Kasargod Town inspector V.V. Manoj said they had also arrested his 50-year-old father for threatening the teacher against approaching the police.
He said the student was once involved in an attack on the police during a clash between students on the campus.
When Mr Jose tried to prevent him from cheating in exams, he allegedly held his hand and slapped on the face. The teacher fell on the ground, and the student continued his brutal attack using a broken piece of a bench.
Other teachers ran to the spot and rescued Mr Jose from further assault.
All students were witnesses to the incident. The school management says that he's a frequent troublemaker who faced several disciplinary actions....
