The right hand of the student reportedly got fractured as he was allegedly hit with a cricket bat by teacher Williams yesterday. The parents, after lodging a complaint with the police, vented their ire against the school authorities for adopting corporal punishments despite its ban in the country.
The parents were later joined by members of some local organizations.
The teacher, �Brother� Williams, however, apologized for hurting the student, asserting that it was unintentional.
The parents retreated after the school authorities sought pardon from them and assured to take care of the child by meeting his medical expenses.
