Two school pupils have been caught on camera savagely beating their own teacher on the street after he told them off in class. The teacher was hospitalised after the attack which saw him repeatedly punched. Mirror Online reports that the teacher had been involved in a row with his two students during class, and the pair sought revenge by ambushing him in an alleyway after school. The school, which specialises in art, released a statement confirming the shocking incident, in which the unnamed music teacher was hospitalised.
The incident occurred earlier this month in the city of Baoji, in north-west China, and involved two male pupils from the school. Witnesses, one of whom recorded the incident on a mobile phone, were stopped from stepping in but did call the police. The camera footage was handed over to authorities, leading to an investigation by the local education bureau.
Both students were reportedly reprimanded for their actions, but still were allowed to return to school. The music teacher has since returned to his post following a few days of recovery in hospital.
