LAMKA, March 7: In a blatant disregard for the law and the Right to Education (RTE) a prominent school in Lamka, Blue Star Academy, administered corporal punishment to one of its class nine student who had to be admitted at the surgical ward of CCpur District Hospital.
He was awarded the punishment for his failure to complete his class work.
The student told the MACR, Ccpur Chapter that it was not the first time he was given corporal punishment.
Meanwhile, his parents complained that the MACR, that the school should be made accountable for the crime that led to their son being admitted to a hospital.

He however added that the punishment was of serious concern considering the provisions of the Right to Education Act.
