A TEACHER in Tamil Nadu is in hot water after pulling out a fistful of hair from a female student's head, Malaysia Nanban reported.
The teacher had supposedly asked the student to photocopy a few pages from a book during class, but returned with copies of an entire chapter instead.
Enraged, the teacher grabbed a handful of the student's hair, ripping some of her hair off. The student then fainted from shock.
The teacher quickly revived the girl by spraying water on her face, and reportedly advised her to cover up the bald spot and not to tell anyone about the incident.
However, the student then went home and told her parents about the assault, after which they lodged a police report.
Police have started their investigations.
