Student in Patna loses hearing after school teacher slaps him
In a shocking incident, Avinash Kumar, a class 10 student of a school in Patna has suffered from hearing loss after he was reportedly slapped by a teacher.
Avinash's father, who is a lawyer, has filed a police complaint against the class teacher, Sunita Sinha. The teacher says she slapped the student because he was chewing gum inside the classroom.
The teacher claims she asked Avinash to take the gum out of his mouth and keep it in his pocket. She says that Avinash replied saying he would throw it outside instead of keeping in his pocket. To this, she got angry and slapped him hard near his left ear.
Avinash felt severe pain and suffered from internal injury in the eardrum leading to hearing loss.
