A private school teacher has been charged by Rewari police for assaulting a Class 8 student on December 23, as reported by Hindustan Times. The student was allegedly thrashed for breaking the seat of the bus. However, according to his father the seat was already broken when the student boarded the bus. His father claimed that he merely sat on the broken seat, after which his teacher beat him with sticks.
The boy's father, Praveen, who lives in Saharanwas village, told HT, "My son used to ride the bus to school. He attends a private school in the area." He and two other students were seated on a seat that was already damaged on December 23. When they got to the school, Sahil, the teacher, beat him with sticks since he had broken the bus seat.
The teacher was charged under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act, according to a Rewari police spokesperson.
