A 16 year old schoolboy has been hospitalized following an alleged assault by four teachers of his school, Galenbindunuwewa Maha Vidyalaya.
The GCE O/L student had written something on a wall against the four teachers in question for their conducting private tuition classes.
Angered by the student’s act, the teachers had dragged him out of his classroom, beaten him and trampled him.
The boy had kept the incident a secret from his parents, as the four teachers had threatened him that he would not be given admission to the O/L examination.
He had told the parents about the assault only after he had fallen ill two days ago, and admitted to hospital with complaints of difficulty in breathing, dizziness and chest pain.
