In an instance of corporal punishment, a Class I student here suffered injuries in right eye after his school principal allegedly canned him for failing to deposit school fee.
Eight-year-old Jaydeep was caned by principal of A S Public School at village Kaser Kalan here for failing to pay one month's school fee, officiating SSP Srikant Yadav said.
The incident happened on January 30 but the complaint was registered today by his father Upendra Singh, SSP said.
