Kheda teacher accused of caning students surrenders, gets bail
The teacher who was wanted for allegedly beating up students of a primary school reportedly in an inebriated condition, surrendered before the Kathlal police on Thursday evening. Later, he was released on bail granted by a local court.
Zala, who taught at a government primary school at Sarkhehj village in Kathlal taluka of Kheda district, surrendered around 4 pm. He was booked under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 504 (intentional insult) of the Indian Penal Code.
Meanwhile, at a meeting, parents and residents of Sarkhej agreed to put the matter to rest after Zala reportedly agreed to seek a transfer from the school.
"Village sarpanch Dalpatsinh Rathod and parents have agreed to let the teacher work here in the best interest of students. Zala would seek a transfer during annual transfer camp next year," said school principal Babu Dabhi.
The principal said he had reported the incident to the education inspector of Khatlal and that he would conduct an inquiry into the matter.
