New Delhi [India], September 24 (ANI): A 16-year-old boy, studying in Class 10, sustained multiple injuries after being assaulted allegedly by four of his school teachers in the Yamuna Vihar area of Delhi, officials said.

Speaking to ANI about the incident, the 16-year-old said, "I was looking out of the window when sir came and slapped me. When I said it hurt, he slapped me thrice more. When he approached me again after 4-5 minutes, I apologised to him. But he beat me again and drove me out of the class.""He then took me to the NCC room and called three of his friends (all fellow school teachers) over. Thereater, all four of them punched, kicked and elbowed me. I sustained injuries in my waist and chest and my face swelled up from the assault. I have no clue why the teachers came at me in this way," he added.
