“We admitted Asif in the hospital wherefrom he was discharged after giving first aid,” he added.
“We won’t lodge a police case but request the teachers to be kind towards little children,” he said.
This isn’t the first time when a Dar-ul-Uloom has come under the radar in Kashmir. Earlier, as well some of these Seminaries had been in bad news for the one or the other reasons.
Despite repeated attempts, Principal of the Dar-ul-Uloom in question couldn’t be contacted.
