LAHORE: A ninth grade student of a private chain of schools’ Sanda Road campus suffered injuries allegedly when his teacher tortured him on Monday.

According to police, Mustafa Ahmed of Sanda was writing on the white board in the classroom when his teacher Adnan arrived there and told him to go to his seat.

As the student was heading to his seat, the teacher hurled abuses at him.

When the student asked the teacher why he was abusing him, he got infuriated and started slapping the boy who was rescued by his classmates.

When the students, including Ahmed, approached the principal’s office with a complaint, the teacher holding a wooden rod arrived there and started hitting the student who suffered injuries on his face and shoulders.

However, on the intervention of the principal and the students the teacher left the scene. The injured student was taken to a nearby hospital for first aid.

The victim’s father, Muhammad Asif, said he received a call from the school principal who informed him about the incident. He alleged that the teacher had also tortured his son earlier and he had lodged a complaint against him at Islampura police station.

The Lahore CEO (Education) has taken notice of the incident and ordered an inquiry into the matter.
