Vinkal said, "Students of my class were making noise. The PTI came and started beating me with a stick."
Pawan and Amandeep, both 12, said, "We arrived late at school by a few minutes on Tuesday morning. The PTI stopped us near the canteen and started beating us." Their parents said, "The school authorities made the teacher apologise only when we asked them to approach the police for lodging a complaint."
Principal Indira Khurrana admitted that the incident took place, but hastened to add that the matter had been resolved. "Our school is against corporal punishment," she said.
