Nine primary students were injured as a teacher beat them up severely for breaking her child’s sleep.
The injured are Class V students of Chadkhana Nurunnesa Government Primary School in Kishoreganj upazila.
The victims said assistant teacher Sabiha Siddika came to school with her eight-year-old son on Tuesday (11th April). She then made him sleep on a table in a room beside their classroom.
At one stage, the child awakened up and started crying, making the teacher angry. She blamed the students for breaking her son’s sleep by making hue and cry and started beating them with a stick, injuring nine.
The injured were later admitted to the upazila health complex.
Contacted, Sabiha Siddika said there was nothing wrong as she rebuked them and beat them lightly with her hand.
She alleged that a vested quarter in the area was trying to tarnish the image of the school.
Upazila Primary Education Officer Masudul Hasan said it was unwanted and he would take disciplinary action after getting written complaint from guardians of the injured students.
