Cigarette burns to discipline 'errant' kids

October 04, 2003 19:11 IST

Three schoolchildren were burnt with cigarette butts allegedly by the superintendent of a remand home in Indore in Madhya Pradesh, police said on Saturday.

The district authorities have ordered a probe into the incident which took place on September 29, but came to light only two days back when the children -- aged between 10 and 14 -- were taken to a government hospital for treatment.

The hospital reported the matter to the police and a medico-legal case was filed against the remand home.

The superintendent allegedly used cigarette butts to discipline children not following his instructions.
The children have been identified as Chenu (12), Antar Singh (14) and Sonu (10).
