A student of eight grade at a private cadet college in Larkana reportedly lost his consciousness and was paralysed after he was allegedly beaten up by his teacher, it has been learnt.
The school teacher meted out a harsh physical punishment on the student for unknown reason at the cadet college in Larkana district of Sindh, DawnNews reported on Friday.
Ahmad Hussain, who had scored 95 per cent in recent exam, was so harshly beaten that he lost his consciousness and was paralysed due to an injury to the head while his other body parts were also swollen, his father told DawnNews.
The teen cannot speak or walk on his own and treatment in a private hospital in Karachi has been futile.
Murad Ali Shah takes notice of the incident
Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah took notice of the alleged torture of the teenager reportedly by his teacher and announced that Sindh government will finance the treatment of the boy.
Shah directed the minister for health to visit the boy and see if there aren't enough facilities available for his treatment in Pakistan then make arrangements for his treatment in United States.
The National Assembly in 2013 had unanimously adopted a bill providing up to one-year imprisonment and up to Rs50,000 penalty for the person found guilty of inflicting corporal punishment on children.
The bill was aimed at protecting dignity of the children as human rights.
