Eleven-year-old Apsara Basnet of grade three at the Bal Mandir in Dhulikhel lost consciousness

Apsara fell unconscious after teacher Takhachhen beat her with a pipe several times on her head. The peon later took her to Dhulikhel hospital in an ambulance, said the student’s father Prakash Basnet. Basnet approached the district administration office in Dhulikhel for lodging a complaint with her X-ray report. “My daughter requested the teacher a number of times not to beat her.

After she fell unconscious, the teacher fled the school taking her to be dead.” According to the doctor, the girl is out of danger.
