(MENAFN - Arab Times) An unidentified teacher in a school in the suburb of Abdullah Al-Salem reportedly beat a student with an electric wire just because he did not take the teacher's permission to use the laboratory equipment, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.
Sources say the student was badly beaten and there were clear wire marks on his back and arms.
The daily added the student was beaten in front of other students so that it becomes an example for other students.
