Andhra student beaten to death by teacher

Hyderabad,  (IANS) In a shocking incident, a 14-year-old student in Andhra Pradesh died on Friday after he was brutally beaten up by his teacher for not doing home work. The teacher is absconding.

Chintu, a student of Class 8, died at a government-run hospital in Guntur town.

Sudhakar, a teacher at the zila parishad high school in Godavarru village of Penamaluru mandal in Krishna district, mercilessly beat up the boy with a stick on August 10.

After undergoing treatment at different hospitals over the past 18 days, the boy breathed his last at the Government General Hospital (GGH) in Guntur on Friday.

Doctors said Chintu’s spinal cord was damaged as the teacher hit him with the stick on the back of the neck. His limbs were not functioning and the boy was also finding it difficult to speak.

After initial treatment at a local hospital and later at GGH, the family shifted him to a hospital in Hyderabad. As the poor family could not afford treatment at the corporate hospital, the boy was brought back to GGH.

Police have registered a case on a complaint by Chintu’s parents and were on the lookout for the teacher, who is absconding.
