Pune: 

A case has been registered against an art teacher of a Pune-based residential school, for allegedly hitting a student in the face for not completing a drawing assignment.

The child's parents, who filed a police complaint on Monday, claimed the assault has led to the child suffering from "facial paralysis".

The alleged incident took place between October 15 and 25 in the Shri Chhatrapatil Shivaji Maharaj Preparatory Military School where the child is a Class 6 student, the police said.

The parents on Monday approached Shivajinagar police station where a case of voluntarily causing grievous hurt was registered against the teacher who has been identified as Sandeep Gade, an official said.

School principal S Patil said Mr Gade had been suspended.

"On November 3, we came to the school to take our child home for Diwali. However, we noticed some abnormalities in the left side of his face. Upon inquiring, our child told us that the teacher had hit him in the face and banged it against a bench for not completing an assignment," said the victim's father.

He claimed that a doctor had said the child was suffering from facial paralysis. The family lives in Indapur area of Pune district, he informed.
