A small boy from Punjab’s Gurdaspur district complained to the police about his teacher and parents after he was asked to attend tuition classes amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. The boy was going to his tuition class from home when he was stopped on the way by the police. When they questioned him, he told the cops that he was asked to attend classes during the lockdown. The boy went to the tuition teacher’s residence with the cops as they wanted to experiment if he was speaking the truth. A video of the incident was shared on Twitter by a user, Gautam Trivedi, and has gone viral on social media. Upon arrival at his teacher’s residence with the cops, the boy knocked at the gate restlessly. After opening the door the cops schooled her.
In the words of the cops, “Who gave you the permission to take tuitions of other people’s children? First answer this,” the police official told the teacher. The boy, in the meantime, told the cops that three other kids also visited his teacher’s residence for tuitions. “Because of coronavirus, we are not letting people visit each other’s houses and here, you are taking tuitions? Corona doesn’t affect you guys? Schools are shut. Colleges are shut. Why are you taking classes,” the cop asked the teacher in Punjabi. “Kids were sent for tuition by parents so the kids reported against their parents and teachers to the police,” Gautam Trivedi said in the caption of his post.
