A woman teacher in Bhubaneswar has been arrested for inflicting three children with burn injuries on finding mistakes in their homework, police said on Sunday.
Kabita Swain, 35, a teacher in a government child care centre, also holds private tuitions at her home in the Gandamunda square of the capital city. The three children, all four-year-olds, were beginners and went to her house for tuition.
On Friday evening, Kabita allegedly lost her temper after she found mistakes in the home work of the kids. She punished them with a hot iron, a police official said.
While Raghunath Mishra's hand was scalded, the other two kids - Kartika Sahu and Balram received burn injuries on their cheek and thighs. Police rushed to the spot after the family members of the kids reported the matter to the police station, he said.
The police arrested Kabita and have sent the children for a thorough medical examination.
