Kolkata: A hostel warden of a school in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas has been arrested after he hit a 12-year-old boy on the head with a cricket bat, the police said on Saturday.
While the incident at the North Point Senior Secondary School in Rajarhat happened on Nov 30, a police complaint was filed only on Friday when the parents of the boy came to know about it.
“On the basis of a complaint that 12-year-old Mohammad Sahin Mondal was hit on the head by a bat, we have arrested the warden Debjyoti Das,” said a police officer.
According to the complaint, Das attacked Sahin with a bat because the boy failed to answer some questions. The boy’s family also said the school tried to hush up the matter. The school has since suspended Das.For all the latest Regional News, download NewsX App
