Student’s family kill teacher

March 21, 2017


LAHORE: A private school teacher was killed for admonishing a class-V student in Badami Bagh on Monday.

Police said Rizwan Tanveer, 47, had admonished his student Bilal Rashid for rude behaviour and expelled him from the school.

Police said the student called his father and other family members who stormed into the school and started beating the teachers.

Two teachers, including a female, suffered injuries and were taken to Mayo Hospital where doctors pronounced Tanveer dead. The female teacher was stable.

Police shifted the body to morgue for autopsy and recorded statements of eyewitnesses.

Later, police registered a murder case against suspects Rashid, Sultan and two others on the complaint of Nadeem, brother-in-law of the victim.

City Division SP (operation) Adil Memon said the family of the student attacked the teachers for admonishing him.

He said police were waiting for the post mortem report to know the exact cause of death because there were no apparent marks of torture on victim’s body.

He said they were conducting raids to arrest the suspects.
