A 12-year-old girl was slapped 168 times over a period of six days by her classmates at the Navodaya Vidyalaya, a residential school in Thandla town of Jhabua,MP. The girl’s father, Shivpratap Singh, complained to school authorities and police that she was slapped between January 11 and 16 for not completing her homework on the instructions of their science teacher, Manoj Kumar Verma. The girl is a student of Class VI at the school. Singh also stated that his child was unwell and alleged that his daughter fell ill due to fear and distress and refused to go to school.

Thandla police station in-charge S S Baghel confirmed that a complaint had been received but added that no injury was found during medical examination conducted on the girl. School Principal K Sagar defended the action of the teacher and termed it a “friendly” punishment.
