According to the police, the incident came to light after the video was seen by Mumbai police commissioner Datta Phadsalgikar on WhatssApp. He ordered action against the class. However, on the instructions of senior police officers, the Malwani police registered the FIR against the teachers. No arrests have been made.
According to the police, the incident occurred on Friday at Shree Tutorial Classes located at Malwani Gate no 5. The teacher punished both the children for not completing their home work. They were made to stand naked outside.
The tutorial is run by a family of three — Ganesh Nair, mother Sridevi and sister-in-law Saroj. Ganesh told sunday mid-day that the parents of the two kids were present at class and it was on their insistence that they were stripped. Senior police inspector Milind Khetle, said, “We have registered a case against two teachers under the Juvenile Justice Act 82 and 75.”
