Bengaluru: An incident of a female teacher in a private school assaulting a student with an iron rod for not doing homework has come to light on Friday in Bengaluru.
The student studying in seventh standard has been admitted to a private hospital. As a result of the assault, the student suffered severe bleeding and got six stitches on his hand.
The incident took place on December 5 and the school management tried to hush up the matter.
