When the classes began after the prayer Thursday, Jena entered Class VI where Harichandan was teaching and dragged him outside. Jena repeatedly slapped him and hit him. The school headmaster later controlled the situation. The police arrived at the school and took the teacher to the police station and recorded his statement.
