India: A 19-year-old teacher in West Delhi has been charged with assaulting the modesty of a woman with intent to outrage her modesty after she took punishment for not doing homework to an extreme in her kindergarten classroom.
The teacher made the 6-year-old student strip, tied her hands, and forced to stand on a desk while directing her classmates to chant "shame, shame" and clap. Police say the teacher had completed class XII but had no formal teaching qualifications.
"She had once been slapped so hard that she returned home with marks on her cheeks. We didn't take any action and instead blamed her for not doing her homework, but what happened this time around is totally unacceptable," said the child's brother.
