Bhopal/Sagar: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Wednesday ordered an inquiry into the incident in which 29 girl students of a government school were allegedly beaten with a wooden scale and a duster for not completing their homework.

In the incident that took place on Monday, 29 students of Kasturba Gandhi Government Middle School in Bhangarh alleged their teacher had beaten them up with a wooden scale and duster for not completing their homework, an official said.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Nath said, "A case in which 29 girl students of Kasturba Gandhi Government Middle School of Bhangarh, Bina (Sagar district), were beaten up has come to my notice. The orders have been issued to investigate into the matter."

Strict action would be taken against the guilty, he added.

Hostel warden Seema Kaushal and the affected students on Tuesday submitted a complaint that the girls were beaten up by their teacher, Bhangarh police station in-charge Sumit Sharma said.

The injured students, who experienced swelling in their hands and legs, were treated at a civil hospital in Bina, he added.

The statements of the students have been recorded and a detailed investigation is underway, he said, adding a case would be registered after the probe.

Meanwhile, district education officer (DEO) Mahendra Tiwari said following a departmental inquiry, the assistant director of the education department has been asked to file an FIR in this case.

During the course of the inquiry, it was found there was some enmity between Kaushal and teacher Mamta Patel, Tiwari said. On the basis of the inquiry report, a letter has been written to senior officers recommending action against both Patel and Kaushal, he added.
