On Friday, North Delhi Police filed an FIR against Pardeep Phogat, a student of Shri Ram College Of Commerce for beating his professor in the college’s parking lot. He assaults professor Ashwani Kumar because he gave him zero in the internal assessment.
An FIR under IPC sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 341(wrongful restraint) and 506 (criminal intimidation) has been lodged against Phogat. College principal told Indian Express that “Last semester, he had failed in all his exams, and this semester he didn’t even sit for the examinations. What can a teacher do? He probably thought he could threaten teachers and have his way, but things don’t work that way. He had earlier also called and threatened Ashwani Kumar on the phone regarding the same”.
While, Phogat justified himself by saying that he wasn’t left with an option but to beat the teacher. He also said that “My attendance was normal, but still the professor stopped my admit card this year”. I was simply talking to him, but then he said that “mein tujhe pass nhi hone dunga”, because of which I slapped him.
