A female teacher at a school in Khanewal has been accused of torturing a fourth grader for not completing his homework.
His parents have filed a case against the school at the Saddar police station. “She beat him so bad that his entire body is covered in bruises,” his mother reported.
The boy’s parents have demanded an investigation against the school teacher and the principal. Khanewal’s deputy commissioner has taken notice of the incident and has said to take immediate action.
He has also notified Education CEO Ashfaq Ahmed to submit a detailed investigation report of the case as soon as possible.
Yesterday, Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari told Islamabad High Court (IHC) that the cabinet has approved a bill to ban corporal punishment for children, adding that the same would be introduced for debate and passage by the Parliament.
