TUMKUR: An anganwadi teacher severely beat up a three-year-old girl for her pranks at Chikka Seebi village near here.

The incident which had taken place last week came to light on Monday. Sangeetha (3), daughter of Kashinath and Kalpana, is still suffering from the deep wounds inflicted by her teacher.

She has been admitted to the District General Hospital where the doctors have advised a surgery.

Nirmala is the anganwadi teacher who has been accused of the act.

She allegedly picked up a slate and beat up the child before picking up a firewood.

The force of the beatings was such that the victim’s leg bled.

‘’When I first heard of the incident, I thought the wound be not more than a scratch, but I was shocked when I saw the scars,’’ said Kashinath.

For some days, the parents got the child treated at a local dispensary.

But when the wound did not heal, they were worried and admitted Sangeetha to the District General Hospital.

Kashinath has lodged an oral complaint over phone with the state’s Commission for Child Rights and Protection on Monday.
