Posted 16/9-10 at 17.55

Parents of a 15-year-old boy with Down's Syndrome have claimed that at his South Mumbai school he had been tied and gagged with a handkerchief and even forced to eat chilies. Subsequently, it is alleged he was beaten by a teacher.

The police and school say the complaints have been resolved with the parents. However, the boy's father said, ‘ Instead of taking any action, the principal expelled my child. He has been studying in the school for the last 10 years. He is now scared of going back to school.'
