A cleric was arrested for brutally beating a 10-year-old Madrassa student ‘for being absent’ from a seminary in Lahore.
According to details, a 10-year-old madrassa student named Tayyab was brutally beaten with a stick by a cleric ‘for being absent’ from a seminary in Lahore’s Liaquatabad area.
The Liaquatabad police station came into action after the victim’s parents filed a case against the cleric. Torture marks were visible on the different parts of the victim’s body.
Meanwhile, a case has also been registered and the cleric has been booked by the Police Investigation wing.
It is pertinent to mention here that incidents of seminary and other educational institutes’ teachers found involved in torturing students have occurred time and again.
Last year in 2021, an eight-year-old boy was very badly beaten to death by a cleric for not learning his lesson at a religious seminary in Vehari District on Sunday. Doctors at the hospital where the child was brought for medico-legal formalities confirmed that his body bore torture marks.
According to reports, the cleric allegedly beat a student with a wire. After receiving the complaint, the police took action and arrested a cleric from Vehari.
