A teacher at a private school in Haryana’s Hisar allegedly painted the face of a nine-year-old girl black and paraded her inside the school for poor performance in a test.
The incident angered the family of the girl who performed a protest on Monday. The father of the class 4 student demanded the school to be closed as it allowed such an incident to take place.
The family of the girl said that the teacher painted the girl’s face with black colour and was paraded through the campus after she scored less in a test held on December 6.
Several students alleged that the teacher had punished them in the similar way, by painting their faces black, for not performing well in exams. The police are probing the case after a complaint was filed.
