However, the school principal K Sagar termed it a "friendly" punishment.

"They were not strong slaps but mild and friendly ones. We will also talk to the parents," Sagar said.

The girl is a student of Class VI at the school.

He told police that the school’s science teacher, Manoj Kumar Verma, on January 11, told the his daughter’s classmates to slap her as a form of punishment and 14 girls slapped her two times every day for six days.

Singh also stated in his complaint, filed a couple of days ago, that his child was unwell and therefore was unable to complete her homework. He alleged that the school was aware of his child’s illness.

He also told police that his daughter fell ill due to fear and distress and refused to go to school, following which she had to be admitted to a local hospital.

Thandla police station in-charge S S Baghel confirmed that a complaint had been received but added that no injury was found during medical examination conducted on the girl.

School Principal Sagar defended the action of the teacher and termed the disciplining method a "friendly" punishment.
