A teacher at a private school in the city’s Gulshan-e-Ravi area allegedly beat one of his students to death over failure to complete an assignment, the deceased’s family claimed on Thursday.
According to the 16-year-old’s paternal uncle, Hunain — son of Bilal and a resident of Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Ravi neighbourhood — studied in Grade 10 where his teacher, Kamran, beat him for not completing his assignment before coming to class.
Late Hunain’s uncle further alleged that Kamran, the teacher, kicked the teen in the back and stomach due to which he lost consciousness but was not immediately shifted to the hospital. Later, however, Hunain succumbed to his injuries after he reached the hospital.
Police said they have arrested the teacher and started an investigation after sending the body for a post-mortem examination.
