A Dalit student of a government school in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur was allegedly assaulted by a teacher for drinking from his water camper, police said on Saturday.
When the boy’s family members learnt about Friday’s incident, they reached the school and protested against the teacher, identified as Ganga Ram Gurjar.
The student claimed that he drank from the camper as there was no water in the tank.
