The father of the nine-year-old girl has demanded that the private school should be shut down for allowing the incident to take place. "My daughter got less numbers in a test held on December 6. A female teacher painted my girl's face with black colour. She was made to go around the school and embarrassed. I demand the administration to close the school. She is in Class IV and even if she did not know the answer of the question, they should not have done that," the girl`s father told reporters here.
