Indian schoolboy’s arm stamped over missed payment

A school is being investigated in India after a pupil’s arm was stamped with a notice of non-payment of fees.

The principal of the private school in Ludhiana city in the Punjab region admitted to the action, but said the child's arm was stamped because he "forgot his notebook".

The 13-year-old boy's family says he has been refusing to go to school after the "humiliating" incident.

Swarnjeet Kaur, the district education officer, said the school was "absolutely wrong" and vowed to take action against those found responsible.
