New Delhi: The Muzaffarnagar Superintendent of Police (SP) in Uttar Pradesh was directed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday to submit a status report on the investigation in the case of a Muslim student being allegedly slapped by his classmates on the instructions of his teacher.
A bench of the apex court ordered the SP to provide information about measures initiated for the protection of the said student and his parents.
The Supreme Court issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh government seeking its reply in the matter by September 25.
Tushar Gandhi, the great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, had filed a PIL seeking speedy investigation in the student slapping case.
The Muzaffarnagar Police has booked the concerned teacher for making communal comments and ordering her students to slap a Muslim classmate for not doing his homework.
