The mother of a student at a private school in Punjab was beaten up by the owner and female teachers. She demanded her daughter’s school-leaving certificate. A viral video of the incident showed the school staff ripping her clothes and pulling her hair while she screamed for help.
She had decided to withdraw her child as she and her laborer husband could not afford the fee.
The District Police Officer (DPO) took notice of the incident and directed the police to take action against the suspects. The school owner and the teachers involved in the incident have been arrested, and a First Information Report (FIR) has been filed.
