In an incident of violence against children, a four-year-old student lost his eyesight on Thursday after he was allegedly tortured by the principal of a private school in Tando Bago, the student’s family claims.
The boy named Abu Hurera Leghari received multiple bruises to his left eye and was rushed to a local eye clinic, but was later shifted to Hyderabad for further treatment.
Zulfikar Leghari, the father of the victim, said that the left eye of his son had been completely damaged. He alleged that his son was tortured by the principal of a school in Tando Bago town and requested the higher authorities to take action against the accused principal.
The principal, however, rejected the allegations and claimed that the boy got injured as some of his classmates attacked him with pencils.
Tando Bago SHO Hakim Ali Jalbani told a leading English daily that he will register a first information report against the accused only after the victim’s father approaches him and provides medical certificates.
