The Kalapather Police in Hyderabad on Saturday registered a case against a private school teacher for allegedly hitting a third-standard student with a cane and injuring his right hand thumb, police said.
The teacher Sharada allegedly meted out corporal punishment to a seven-year old boy Mohd Faisaluddin by hitting him with a cane on his right hand yesterday. As the cane hit Faisaluddin's right hand's thumb nail, it started bleeding, police said quoting from the complaint.

Following a complaint lodged by the boy’s parents, the Kalapather Police have registered a case under section 324 (Voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of IPC against the teacher and were further enquiring, a police officer said, adding the teacher was not yet arrested.
