Sargodha Student Succumbs to Injuries after Beaten by Teacher

The student, who was tortured by the teacher, died of his injuries.

At a private school in Badar Ranjha town of Sargodha, a student passed away from injuries sustained as a result of severe physical punishment administered by his teacher, according to a report published on Saturday.

Two days ago, the incident came to light following the student’s passing at a Faisalabad private hospital.

According to the police, Samiullah, a ninth-grade student, was severely injured in his backbone as a result of his teacher hitting him with a stick because he had forgotten his lesson.

They claimed that because of the victim’s deteriorating health, she was first sent to a hospital in Sargodha and then to one in Faisalabad. Samiullah, however, was unable to recover from her wounds and passed away while receiving treatment.

Police went on to say that a case has been opened in this respect. They later verified that they had arrested the perpetrator.

The regional police official had earlier stated that a post mortem would be performed on the deceased youngster to ascertain the cause of death and that orders have been issued to investigate every facet of the case.

Chairperson of the National Child Rights Commission (NCRC), Ayesha Raza Farooq, expressed her horror and anxiety at the occurrence in an interview with Geo.tv. According to her, the commission is in direct contact with the Sargodha authorities and has taken “action” on the problem.

She stated that the NCRC had communicated with the district police officer (DPO) in Sargodha and requested a report regarding the student’s tragic death brought on by physical punishment.
