Jhelum: Police on Wednesday confirmed that a male teacher was arrested violently beating his students an hour after a video went viral on social media in the city’s Mohalla Khansama.
Officials said the first information report (FIR) has been filed by the girls’ father at the city police station, after which the teacher was taken into custody.
The petitioner stated that his two daughters, both minors, were studying at the “Reformer Academy” at Mohalla Khansama in Jhelum, according to a copy of the FIR available with him Geo.tv.
The father further said that in the FIR his daughters had refused to attend tuition classes for the last few days and when asked why this was the case, they came to know that it was due to fear of being beaten by their teacher. The father said that the incident caused him great physical and mental pain.
The news of the arrest came to Punjab Chief Minister Osman Bujdar shortly after the incident.
Buzdar sought a report from the Regional Police Officer for Rawalpindi on the matter and ordered immediate action against the arrested person as per law.
“Anyone who violently beats their students does not deserve any concession,” he was quoted as saying.
Earlier, Twitter users have called for the teacher to be arrested after the video was allegedly shot at a school in Jhelum. In the clip, the man was seen shaking and shaking one of his students, a young girl, with a hoof and then hitting him on the back, after which he fell to the floor.
His face was clear and law enforcement agencies could certainly detect the “monster under the guise of a teacher”, one of the @mona_qau users said.
Another user stated, “Demons instill fear in a child, not a teacher. No learning occurs under this immense fear and children develop psychological issues of this abuse.”
