Chandigarh: A shocking incident of corporal punishment has now come to fore in Haryana, where a class IV student was allegedly chained for not completing his homework at a madrassa.
The incident took place at Nushrat Ali Islamic Madrasa in Haryana.
The boy was rescued by the police later.
The father of the boy had lodged a complaint with police and demanded the arrest of the erring teachers of the madrassa.
After initial probe into the matter, it has now come to light that the student was chained to prevent him from bunking classes on a regular basis.
The teachers claimed that the student fled home from the madrassa on Monday without completing his school work and that’s why he was chained as a disciplinary action.
"We did it to stop him from fleeing home during school hours," teachers reportedly told the police.
The police registered a case against two teachers of the madrassa including Sabir and Mubarak under various Sections of the IPC, including 506 (threatening to life) and the Juvenile Justice Act.
Meanwhile, the chairperson of district child welfare committee Satpal Kaur has formed a team to probe the incident.
