Police in Jammu and Kashmir have arrested a teacher for beating minor students at a school in Awantipora area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

In a statement, a police spokesman said that the police made the arrest after a video which got viral on social media platforms purportedly showed a school teacher beating minor children.

The police said that Awantipora police took cognizance of the matter and took the teacher into custody.

The police said that the department is committed to show zero tolerance towards any physical or mental punishment inflicted through humiliating methods on school-going children.

“It is now globally acknowledged that punishment in any form inflicted on school-going children comes adversely in way of developing full potential of the school-going children,” added the spokesman.
