TORTURE: Rung Pur police registered a case against a teacher of Madressah Jamia Hussainia Arabia for allegedly torturing a student and fracturing his arm.

District Police Officer (DPO) Ghazi Salahuddin took action against seminary teacher Sanaullah, who allegedly beat up seven-year-old Tanvir Ahmad with a baton.

Haq Nawaz, the father of Ahmad, told police that his son’s arm had been fractured because of the torture of the teacher, who also locked his son in a room and attempted to bandage up the arm. Ahmad was sent to the rural health centre for treatment.
