Lucknow, Dec 31 (IANS) A school teacher in Bhavsi village of
Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh was Friday arrested and jailed
under the stringent Dalit Act for brutally caning an 11-year old boy
for his refusal to wash the school utensils.

According to an official, teacher Pradeep Sharma caned Deepak Dec 29
so badly on his knuckles that his finger got fractured.

The caning was for Deepak's refusal to wash the school utensils that
were used to serve the mid-day meal to schoolchildren.

The official said that a preliminary inquiry by a five-member team of
local government officials confirmed that the teacher used to force
the boy to wash used utensils every day.

Angry over Deepak's refusal, the teacher went on hitting his knuckles
until the little boy fell down crying.

Pradeep Sharma has been arrested and sent to jail, the official said.
