Misraulia: A probe was today ordered by the administration into allegations that an eight-year-old girl was mercilessly beaten up by a teacher for not bringing Rs 2 towards contribution for holding the Independence Day function at a state-run school here in Vaishali district.

Superintendent of Police Sujit Kumar said that though no official complaint had been registered he had heard "that the girl suffered multiple injuries and her arm was broken by a teacher, said to be neighbour, a couple of days back, and she has stopped going to the school."

Though no complaint had been lodged by the guardian of the girl with the Jandaha police station, adjacent to the school, he had asked the Officer-in-charge Sudhir Kumar to visit the village this evening and inquire into it, the SP said.

The police would take appropriate legal action after ascertaining the facts related to the incident and compilation of the inquiry report, Kumar added.

According to reports, the teacher had ordered the students to bring Rs two each towards their contribution for the I-day function and had charged towards the girl Komal with a stick when she could not bring the money.

The teacher, way from the village at present, could not be contacted.
