THE AGEM School authorities today denied the allegation of beating up of the student, Anwar. Talking to the media persons here, Agem Society president Dr Ashok Jain alleged that the father of the student presented the incident in a twisted form.

“It was a mild punishment and the boy was not hurt,” said Dr Jain. He showed a CD about the incident to the media persons.

Sticking to his claim of mild punishment, he said it was unfortunate for him to learn that father of the student was defending the mistake of his son. “It was true that I slapped him but that was not meant to be the violence but a lesson regarding right behaviour,’’ he clarified.

He said that for him students are like his children and he always believes in shaping them as good citizens.

“Even on many occasions, parents slap their children. Does that mean they want to hurt them? I do not think so,’’ said the president. “I do not believe in shaping them up by resorting to violence but slapping them once or twice is a normal thing,” he added.

The father of Anwar, the class XII student of Agem School, brought the issue to the notice of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and other higher authorities on December 20 last year.

The Chief Minister directed to hold an inquiry into the incident.
