A Class 5 student of a city school was rewarded with a slap by his sports teacher for winning a game of chess.

In a fit of anger, Sunesh Singh, the physical training instructor at Meenakshi World School at Sector 10A, slapped 10-year-old Prince Yadav after a few of his classmates celebrated his victory on Wednesday.

“He not only slapped the boy but also twisted his nose,” said Rakesh Yadav, Prince's maternal uncle.

Earlier in the day, the accused teacher allegedly slapped Prince twice, when he was standing in queue for breakfast.

“When I looked down to adjust my I-card, the teacher slapped me for not standing in the row. My nose began to bleed profusely. I was also made to stand outside the class the entire day,” said Prince.

Yadav lodged a complaint at the Sector 10 police station after the school authorities allegedly thrashed him.

“I went to the school to speak to the authorities but they didn't listen to me. Instead they beat me up,” claimed Yadav.

According to the police, the matter has been sorted out. “A compromise has been reached and no case was registered,” said SHO Inspector Sajjan Singh. The school denied the incident. Prince, who hails from Rajasthan, shifted to Gurgaon for his studies and lives with his uncle.
