Mumbai:A 14 year old student of a Nalla Sopara school has suffered partial hearing loss to his left ear after his History teacher slapped him for not bringing a book to class. The teacher has been arrested by the Nalla Sopara police and has been released on bail by the Vasai court. The incident occurred in early February but the incident came to light on Monday.
Rohit Kota (14) a Std VIII student of the Mother Mary English School, Nalla Sopara (W) on 2 February had forgotten to bring a History book to school. As a result, his teacher, Vijal Muchala asked for the book, and Rohit said he had forgotten to bring to school, and similarly four other students too had forgotten the same book,said Sharvanti, mother of the victim. In a fit of rage, Vijal slapped Rohit so hard that his left ear started to pain and when he returned home, he complained of ache and some blood was oozing, so we consulted our family doctor, who told us to get the ear examined by an ENT specialist,so we consulted a Bhayander based ENT specialist who said that Rohit has suffered damage to the ear as the ear drum has ruptured partially and needs surgery,said Sharvanti.
We took up the matter with the school management, who did not show any remorse so we complained to the Nalla Sopara police,said Sharvanti. We have registered case under Sections 325 and 323 of the IPC and also Section 23 of the Juvenile Justice Act,2000 and we arrested Vijal and when produced before the Vasai court she has been released on bail,said PI Bharat Jadhav of Nalla Sopara police station.
Since the incident, Rohit is not attending school, as he is under fear and the final exam begings in early March,and we are also worried, said Sharvanti. Meanwhile, efforts to contact Mahadev Kokate, principal of the school was futile.
