Teacher held for beating class six student, suffers paralysis
An art teacher booked for allegedly beating a Class VI student for not completing drawing assignment was arrested Tuesday.
The child's parents had approached Shivaji Nagar police station here Monday, alleging that he had suffered facial paralysis because of the beating. "We arrested Sandeep Gade, the accused, late last night and produced him before a court today.
The court sent him in police custody for two days," said an official from Shivaji Nagar police station.
The alleged incident took place last month at the Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Preparatory Military School (SSPMS) here. After the parents filed the complaint, a case under IPC section 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) was registered against Gade. The school has suspended him.
