A private coaching centre in Palanpur is in the midst of a raging controversy after a student complained that his teacher tonsured his head as punishment for failing to complete the homework.
The student alleged that the torture didn’t end after his head was tonsured. He was asked to remain standing in front of the entire class, leaving him humiliated. The boy’s parents have filed a police complaint against the teacher even as several people registered their protest against the teacher’s alleged actions.
Parents of a few students told the media that they are scared of sending their children to the coaching centre as students are traumatised after the incident. They fear they too will be similarly punished.
In the police complaint, the boy’s parents have alleged that he was also beaten up by the teacher in the past. The coaching centre is located in Palanpur’s Hanuman Hill locality.
