A mobile court has sentenced a teacher to seven days in jail for beating a qawmi madrasa student in Nandail upazila of Mymensingh district.
Nandail upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Ershad Uddin confirmed the matter on Wednesday.
Teacher Shafiqul Islam, 45, beat the boy with a bamboo cane for making a mistake in reading on Wednesday morning, said the child’s father.
“Upon receiving the news, I went to the madrasa and saw red swollen spots on my son’s body, from head to toe. I immediately informed the UNO about it,” the father said.
Later, the UNO arrested the teacher and recovered the cane.
