In a shocking video that is going viral, a little boy is slapped mercilessly and repeatedly, by his teacher in the classroom in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow, for not responding to the attendance call. The boy, a student of class 3, was struck 40 times by the furious teacher, according to his family and classmates.
“She is not a teacher but a monster,” says a comment on the video leaked from a private school.
Footage from the CCTV camera fitted in the classroom shows teacher, Retika V John, in a class of nearly forty children, snatching a sheet of paper from the boy and slapping him mercilessly with both the hands. The teacher is also seen dragging the child by his tie.
The boy said that he could not respond to the roll call as he was engrossed in drawing.
Police said that the teacher has been booked for causing hurt, based on a complaint by the boy’s father.
When he reached home after school on Wednesday, his face was swollen.
When his parents contacted his friends, they found out how their son had been assaulted in class.
His parents then met the school principal, who checked the CCTV footage, which showed the teacher continuously slapping and dragging the boy.
