In Navi Mumbai, 10-year-old boy whipped for stealing fruits, two booked | Navi Mumbai News


NAVI MUMBAI: Two teachers, Amit Sawant and Ashwini Sonawane, of a resident school run by a charitable trust in Khanda colony have been booked by police for allegedly severely punishing a 10-year-old boy for stealing fruits from the school premises in the night.
The duo allegedly whipped the boy’s back and arm with a thin wire for two days, locking him inside a bathroom, and starved for an entire day.
The incident had occurred in August, but the boy’s mother lodged a police complaint on December 9. As per the FIR, in July, the mother had taken admission for her son at the school run by Smiling Angels Charitable Trust.
During holidays when the boy’s parents went to meet him, he started crying and told them he doesn’t want to stay at the school. When the parents enquired with the teachers, they were told that they can take their son back home only after paying the entire academic year’s fees. The parents borrowed money from family and friends and paid the entire school fees. After returning home, the boy confided in his parents and narrated the incident. They then approached the police.
