A teacher in Chhattisgarh's Bilaspur district punished a class 2 student by forcibly stuffing several green chillies in his mouth and telling him to eat them, police said on Sunday.

Seven-year-old Rishav Gupta's father Saturday lodged a complaint with police alleging that teacher Shobha Jain stuffed green chillies into his son's mouth over a minor mischief.

Salil Gupta, a resident of Gaurella area in Bilaspur district, said in the complaint that Jain, employed with a private school, punished Rishav on Friday in the classroom.

Rishav was taken to hospital on Saturday after his mouth developed a swelling.

"Jain is being interrogated. She has admitted that she had asked Rishav to take just a bite of green chilli. The teacher has rejected charges that she forced the student to eat several chillies," thana in-charge of Gaurella police station MP Tandon told IANS.
