Teacher arrested for allegedly thrashing student


Berhampur (Odisha), Aug 18: A contractual teacher of a government-run high school in Odisha's Ganjam district was arrested for allegedly thrashing a Class X student, police said today.

The teacher allegedly beat up the 15-year old when he found him sleeping in his class on Friday.


The boy sustained injuries and was initially treated at the primary health centre at Sumandal and then admitted to MKCG Medical College and Hospital in Berhampur.

His condition is stated to be stable, they said. "The teacher was arrested on Sunday on the basis of a complaint lodged by the injured boy's father," Inspector In-Charge of Kodala police station Kalpana Kanhar said.

"We are conducting an inquiry into the incident. Stringent action will be taken against the teacher if found guilty," Ganjam District Education Officer (DEO), Sanatan Panda, said.

In 2004, the state government banned corporal punishment in schools across Odisha.
