In a shocking video that has gone viral, a private school teacher is seen mercilessly slapping a Class 3 student for not responding to roll call, PTI reported.
The teacher at Lucknow’s St John Vianney High School allegedly hit the child around 40 times in just two minutes on Wednesday. The child said he did not respond to the teacher’s attendance call because he was intensely focused on drawing at the time.
When the child went home, his parents noticed that his face was swollen and he was behaving oddly.
