A 7-year old class-3 student(boy) was slapped continuously and mercilessly forty times by a teacher in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh for the mistake of not answering the roll call.
The teacher as per the CCTV footage dragged the boy in between the slapping with her hold on the ‘neck tie’. A comment on the shared Viral video has stated- “She is not a teacher but a monster.” The video leaked from St. John Vianney High School, a private school in Lucknow where the student was studying.
All the forty children in the class, were stunned, as they watched their teacher Retika V John snatch a sheet of paper from the boy and slap him mercilessly with both her hands. The rage was so high that the teacher did not care while she pushed the boy towards the bench, with his back hitting the bench.
The boy is seen protecting his cheek initially by covering it with his palm but later puts it down and takes the slapping without revolt.
The punishment was given by this ruthless teacher as the boy was engrossed in drawing while the attendance was called out.
When he reached home after school yesterday, his face was swollen and he appeared unusual to his parents.
