I don’t have words and strength to add something of my own to this news.
Lucknow: A school principal in Uttar Pradesh was booked on Thursday for tying a five-year-old student with ropes and dragging him for nearly 50 metres for not attending school regularly, an official said.
“An FIR has been registered against the school principal Shamsad Ali for ill-treating the child Alok Gupta, studying in the kindergarten at the Mother Teresa Public School,” said officer in-charge of basic education Awadesh Kumar.
A team was sent to inquire into the incident in which Alok was tied and dragged on Wednesday and was also made to kneel down in front of the school gate for nearly two hours.
The school is in Baghuchaghat village in Deori, about 280 km from here.
According to information available, Alok was unable to attend school due to health problems, Kumar said.
Corporal punishment is banned in schools following the directions of the Supreme Court.
