Teacher beats up two class 6 girls

New Delhi: Dec 8, 2012 DH News Service

Hurt kids denied first aid by govt school

Two class 6 students from a government school in Adarsh Nagar north Delhi, were beaten up by their teacher and not provided first aid in school despite several requests made by the students for medical help.

Yogita and Afsana have suffered injuries in their hands and thighs respectively.
On Thursday, these children were beaten up because they were playing and singing in the class in the teacher’s absence.

 “We were in class after our recess waiting for the teacher to come. The monitor was asking us to keep quiet but we started playing amongst ourselves. The teacher suddenly came and started hitting me and my friend Afsana,” said Yogita, student at Government Girl’s Senior Secondary school, Adarsh Nagar.

Yogita’s father rushed the children to Babu Jagjivan Ram Hospital for medical aid.
“The doctor told us that there is a possibility of a fractured bone. We are worried. I have filed a complaint with Adarsh Nagar police station which has been accepted but nothing has been done so far,” said Rajkumar, Yogita’s father.

Taking note of this issue, advocate Ashok Agarwal has sent a letter to Kiran Walia, Delhi’s education minister telling her about the teacher’s apathy towards these children.

“It has been observed in such cases that when pulled up, the school authorities resort to a state of denial instead of taking remedial steps which encourages such behaviour among teachers in the long run as they feel shielded,” wrote Agarwal in his letter.

Defining this incident as a “case of mindless violence and negligence”, Agarwal told the paper that penal action should be taken against both teacher and the school to give out a clear message that corporal punishment in schools is not acceptable as it has been long banned across schools as per the Right to Education Act.
