Teachers resorting to corporal punishments and merciless beating is not new in India and a similar shocking incident has come to surface in Karnataka capital city of Bengaluru. a class 10 student was left with head injuries after he was beaten with an iron pipe by his private tutor at his coaching centre in Bengaluru’s Yelahanka.
The 35-year-old man, identified as Vijay Kumar, has been arrested under Juvenile Justice Act and section 324 of IPC (voluntarily causing hurt). However, he was later released on station bail.
The incident took place on August 6. Revealing horrific details, the 15-year-old boy’s mother told The Times of India that Kumar used the iron pipe to thrash her son black and blue and left the child bleeding around 5:30pm. Despite his deep injuries, the tutor kept him inside the tutorial till 8.30pm without alerting the parents, she said, accusing Kumar of abusing them when confronted about the incident.
Meanwhile, Kumar said that his intention was “not to beat, but threaten”. “Their classes were over by 5pm and I asked them to go home and not stand outside. Yet, some boys were seen loitering outside the centre. When I asked what they were doing, they replied in an arrogant manner. I wanted to threaten the boys by swaying the iron rod but never intended to beat them,” he said.
