Class VI girl mercilessly caned by MBMC school teacher

The Right to Education Act forbids corporal punishment by teachers, but despite the rising discontent against such punishment in schools, a shocking incident emerged from Bhayandar, wherein an 11-year-old girl student was beaten up by her teachers over a petty issue. This time around, it is not a private educational institution, but one of the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC)-operated schools in Murdha Village, which was caught on the wrong foot on Monday. In their complaint to the police, the parents of the standard VI student (name withheld) enrolled with MBMC’s Marathi medium school (No:22), claimed that she was allegedly caned by her class teacher for being unable to answer mathematical questions.

With visible injury marks on her arms, a medical test of the girl was conducted in the OPD section of the civic hospital. Ironically, the police registered a non-cognisable (NC) complaint tagged, under Section 323 of the Indian Penal Code on Monday night and summoned the teacher and the headmaster of the school next day. “We have taken statements of all those concerned. As of now, a NC complaint has been registered. However, we have duly intimated the Education Department to conduct a Departmental Inquiry into the matter and submit its report at the earliest, following which further action will be taken,” confirmed Senior Police Inspector Rajendra Kamble.

As per the police, the teacher has admitted in her statement that she punished the student so that she could perform better. However, she also stated that she did not hit her as hard as claimed. Despite several attempts, the administrative officer (education wing) Suresh Deshmukh remained unavailable to comment on the issue.
