Teacher suspended after he was caught on camera beating up a teenage student
A teacher has been suspended after he was caught on camera beating up a teenage student in his class in a violent attack which reduced her classmates to tears.
The disturbing footage was recorded by one of the students in the classroom.
The pair allegedly argued in class over school work when the 16-year-old girl shouted at her teacher. The teacher then allegedly hit her on the head with a book.
In the footage recorded by one of the students in the classroom, the girl retaliates physically, but is quickly beaten to the ground by the taller and stronger male teacher.
Several students begin crying during the incident, while others get involved and yell at the teacher for hitting the pupil.
The alleged row ended when two male students pulled the teacher away from the girl at the Pengdian High School in Xinyang City, in central China’s Henan Province.
