Parents of a student studying in senior KG at Kumkum Vidyalaya in Maninagar have alleged that their child was beaten by a teacher and have demanded CCTV footage of the incident.

Rahul Shyamal, Yash’s father, along with members of the Youth Congress and National Students Union of India (NSUI) gathered outside the school on Tuesday morning to protest.

Confirming the incident, Gaurang Makwana, vice-president, Youth Congress, said, “On June 23, Yash was slapped by a lady teacher which resulted in a cut lip and bleeding. When the parents inquired, they were told that the injury happened as Yash fell down the stairs. However, the school management did not even provide him with basic first aid. When asked, Yash revealed that his lip was bleeding as a teacher had slapped him. Later, the school authorities also threatened his parents on the basis of their caste.”
