An eight-year-old boy was allegedly caned to death by his teacher for failing to solve a maths problem.
Sujit Munda died on Sunday, a week after complaining of severe pain following a caning by his tutor.
The schoolboy's father has filed a police complaint against the 45-year-old teacher, who has now been suspended from the village school of Balsokra, in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, India.
A post mortem has taken place to determine whether the boy died as a result of the corporal punishment.
A police investigation found the teacher had caned Sujit after he failed to solve the arithmetic problem, according to Al Jazeera.
