Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, India: A teacher of a renowned school allegedly slapped a student so hard that he was blinded. The incident happened at the Sharadan Public School on Meerut Road, where a Class V student was blinded after getting slapped by his teacher.
The student had reportedly gone to get his notebook from his classmate. The teacher saw the two talking and slapped him from behind, injuring his eye.
The boy’s family has stated that the moment the child was slapped, the membrane of his eyes burst and he started to lose his sight.
The family has stated further that when they tried to complain to the school administration, they were treated with “abusive” behaviour.
The family then approached the Superintendent of Police, who assured them that justice will be served
The incident comes in light of the Ryan International School murder case, wherein seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur was found dead inside the toilet of the School, with his throat slit on September 8.
