Video of Teacher Thrashing Hostel Students Goes Viral

Friday, June 21, 2019 • Tamil Comments

Mohd Yasin, a teacher at Gujjar Bakerwal Boys Hostel in Doda, Jammu and Kashmir, thrashed students of Class 6 and Class 8 after they were 10 minutes late for class. One student said: “The teacher, after making us stand for an hour for turning up late for a tuition class on Tuesday, caned us for about ten minutes. We were around 25 students who faced the horror. It is not for the first time that he (teacher) has thrashed us. Thrashing and scolding have become a routine affair in the class.” 

Officials said: “The teacher has confessed after he was shown the video. We have ordered an inquiry and action would be taken under rules.” Sagar D Doifode, Deputy Commissioner, Doda, reported: “The teacher has been suspended and an inquiry to be headed by Tehsildar has been initiated to probe the matter.” The police will decide if Yasin has to be arrested. An inquiry under the Juvenile Justice Act has also been initiated. Hostel authorities are required to submit a report within two days, otherwise, an FIR will be filed. It is sad to note that corporal punishment is still used as a means of 'disciplining' children. Hopefully, action against such incidents will stop the use of physical violence as a punishment.
