Boys made to stand naked outside coaching centre; two booked

A minor boy was made to stand naked outside his coaching class here as a punishment, while another underage student accompanied him wearing just a T-shirt, leading police to book two persons for the incident.

The shocking incident came to light today when a video featuring the two boys, aged about 5-6 years, went viral on social media platforms.

The footage shows the two boys – one of them naked and the other just in a T-shirt — standing outside Shreeji Coaching in the suburban Malad, apparently as a punishment.

The minors were clutching books, wiping tears and looking around in embarrassment even as people pass by the busy road, where the centre is located. However, it is not clear when the incident took place.

“The video was brought to the notice of police, following which we decided to take action,” a senior police officer said.

“Two persons associated with the coaching centre have been booked under the Juvenile Justice Act,” he said.

No arrest has been made so far and further investigation is underway.
