A female member of the teaching staff at Gandhi Sewa Niketan in Raebareli, Mamta Dubey, was allegedly beaten up by a group of children inside a classroom. She says the children were instigated to beat her by the school manager.

Dubey is employed as a Child Welfare Officer at the organisation.

The incident was recorded on CCTV cameras installed in the classroom. One of the students was also seen hurling a chair at her.

Dubey has blamed the manager of Gandhi Sewa Niketan for rousing the children to attack her.

According to reports, Dubey was teaching students when they suddenly became agitated and started beating her.

She managed to escape from the room and the manager, who reached the classroom, told reporters that the students had got aggravated because she called them "orphans" and often used to scold them.

Meanwhile, Dubey said she had a dispute with the manager who had even removed her from service, adding that she had been reinstated due to intervention by former District Magistrate Neha Sharma.

"After Neha Sharma was transferred, the manager has been trying to harass me and even orchestrated this attack on me," she said.

Dubey has lodged a complaint against the manager with the City Magistrate and the matter is under investigation.
