A school teacher in Ajmer district of Rajasthan pulled out a clump of hair from a six-year-old girl's head for failing to solve a mathematical question.

The incident occurred in the India Gandhi Balika Ucch Prathmik Vidyala in Pisagan town on Wednesday.

The family of Sameena Bano, a Class 2 student, said they came to know about the teacher's assault when she returned home.

"She told us how her hair was ripped off for failing to add and subtract," said Shakur Rangrej, her grandfather.

Rangrej said block education officer Dwarka Prasad Sharma had promised to take action against the teacher.

Teacher Manjubala, however, denied any wrongdoing. "I have done nothing wrong. I am ready to face inquiry."
