In an appalling video, a 7-year-old child can be seen being assaulted by his school teacher in a private school in Lucknow.

His offence was that he allegedly didn’t stand up when she called out his name during attendance.

Corporal punishment in schools has been banned in India under the RTE Act. Yet the practice continues in many schools.
