Gururgram: A woman teacher of a private school in Gurugram was suspended for allegedly putting sellotape across the mouths of two LKG children to keep them quiet during a class, school authorities said on Saturday.

A video of the incident, which took place in October, has been surfaced on social media. In the video, the teacher is purportedly seen putting an adhesive tape across the mouths of two four-year-old students — one boy and one girl — during a class.

Based on a complaint filed by the parents of the two students, the school management immediately suspended the teacher. "On the complaint of students' parents, we had taken strict action and suspended the teacher," said Gururaj, the school principal.

The teacher allegedly claimed she was forced to take action as the students were disturbing the entire class. She added that they sometimes also used filthy langauge.
