A teacher slapped a student in the class of an engineering university. The class size was 120 and there was undiscipline in the class. There was argument with one student over closing of the rear door. The student was not obeying the teacher and the teacher had to slap the student. The teacher immediately reported to the head and the matter was sorted out in front of the students. The teacher tendered an apology to the student. The teacher is an RTI activist. Now, after six months of the incident the university authorites said to the teacher that permission to pursue criminal complaint against the teacher is pending with them.
Please advice what will happen if such complaint is filed in the court.
Does the student need permission from the university?
