Torture by teacher leaves student paralyzed

Islamabad, Nov 18 (IANS) A 14-year-old student in Pakistan’s Sindh province lost his senses due to alleged torture by his teacher, the media reported on Friday.

After being strangled, Mohammed Ahmed lost his speech and suffered a paralytic attack which left his limbs motionless, Geo News reported.

Ahmed’s father Ghullam Ahmed, also a teacher by profession, said the incident occurred four months ago and a few teachers were responsible for bringing his son to this state.

He said his son’s school told him on August 6 that he had suffered fits.

When he reached the school, his son was covered with injuries on his face, chest, head, back and lower limbs.

Doctors in Karachi said the condition had been caused due to assault. The parents have been told his treatment is possible in the US but they do not have the money to take him abroad.

“I have six daughters and I’ve spent all my savings on Ahmed,” Ghullam Ahmed was quoted as saying.
