Dramatic footage has emerged of a headmaster violently beating school children in India. The shocking clip -which was posted online by another teacher- shows students wincing in pain as they are caned on the floor and on their hands and fingers.
The beating which took place in a convent school, in Fafamau city near Allahabad, in east India, has gone viral since being posted.
It has been reported that the some of helpless students fainted after the teacher carried out his vicious attack, hitting some students until the cane broke.
A mother of one of the victims lodged a complaint against the school but was forced to withdraw it after ‘pressure’ from local authorities, the police and the school.
Students at the school had regularly complained that they were ‘brutally beaten by teachers over the slightest mistakes’.
Ashish, who had only worked at the school for one month, was immediately sacked within hours of posting the astonishing video.
He is now taking action against the authorities and the school.
