Girl beaten up for not reading aloud, hospitalised
The school in Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu, reportedly did not take any action against the teacher despite complaint from the parents.

Virudhunagar: A seven-year-old girl student of a private school in Virudhunagar was hospitalised after being beaten by her class teacher for not reading her English lesson aloud in class.

The girl's mother got to know of the incident from the school bus driver when he called her to take her daughter from the vehicle, police said.

The child then told her mother that the teacher had beaten her with a ruler because she did not read aloud in class. The girl was admitted to a hospital on Friday evening.

Police have registered a case against the woman teacher on a complaint from the girl's father.

He alleged that the principal had not taken any action against the teacher despite parents bringing the incident to her notice and instead asked them to give a written complaint.
