The East Godavari district education officer today directed the head of the Ananparthy corporate schools to conduct an inquiry and submit a report on the incident of a teacher "allegedly forcing a four-year-old boy to drink his own urine".
On Wednesday, a four-year-old student, studying in Satyabhama English Medium school at Ananparthy, while urgently wanting to go to the toilet, urinated in a plastic bottle in the class.
On noticing it, the teacher Gouri asked the student to drink the urine, the police said.
The boy later informed the matter to his parents. Today morning, the child's parents went to the Ananparthy police station and registered a case following which the matter was referred to the district education officer (DEO).
The DEO asked the head of the school to conduct an inquiry into the incident and take stringent action against the teacher.
