Pune school teacher charged for beating up 6-year-old student over ‘bad’ handwriting

A female school teacher has been booked for allegedly beating up a 6-year-old student over his “bad” handwriting in Pune city of Maharashtra, police said on Monday.

A non-cognizable (NC) offence has been registered against the teacher under section 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Wanwadi police station, they said.

The Wanawadi Police have lodged a case against a 35-five-year-old teacher for allegedly beating up a six-year-old toddler over poor handwriting, officials said on Monday.

According to the complaint filed by the boy’s father, the lady teacher not only beat up the student but also threatened to beat him up even more if he informed his parents.

The shocking incident took place in a Lullanagar-based government school on Friday.

Angry over the student’s “bad” handwriting, the teacher allegedly thrashed him in the school on October 20 and also asked the child not to disclose the incident to his family members, the police added.

Police Station in-charge Deepak Lagad informed that the teacher roughed up the student with a stick as he could not draw an alphabet correctly. He went home and told his father about the incident, who later filed a complaint.

“We have registered a non-cognisable offence against the teacher. She was called and explained about her behaviour. The investigation is on in the case,” he added.

In the case of a non-cognizable offence, the police cannot arrest the accused without a warrant or start an investigation without permission of a court.
