A student of a religious seminary in Pakistan's Punjab province has died after he was punished by his teacher, police say.

Atif, seven, was hung upside down from a ceiling fan by Maulvi Ziauddin for not memorising his Koran lessons, his fellow students told the police.

Atif's condition deteriorated quickly and he died in the teacher's room. Maulvi Ziauddin has been arrested.

Human rights organisation say Pakistani children are often exposed to abuse.


That is a horrible way to die

I bet the rest of the children never forgot to memorise their Koran lessons again.

What a terrible way to die. Sigh. Teachers. Tsk. Shame on him.

according to the straitstimes the boy was blind. he was also beaten with sticks before being hung from the fan and an autopsy showed he had died as a result of the torture (which i presume was the beating with sticks).
