A shocking incident took place during a live class allegedly on the Physics Wallah app recently when a purported student slapped a teacher with a slipper.
A video of the incident is going viral where a teacher is seen getting beaten by the student with a slipper in his right hand during a live class. The teacher is seen ducking when the student charges towards him to hit with slippers.
The student then picks up his slipper and leaves as seen in the 9-second video.
It is not known what prompted him to attack the teacher but the video has gone viral on social media since Thursday evening.
