PATHUM THANI -- A woman filed a complaint with Khlong Luang police on Monday morning, accusing a female teacher of mercilessly beating her seven-year-old son, a Prathom Suksa 1 (Grade 1) student at Sang-am Withaya School in tambon Khlong Song of Khlong Luang district.

Boonsueb Khanthong, 50, said this happened on Friday when her son left his classroom before time.  The teacher (name withheld) allegedly hit him 99 times with a wooden stick wrapped in adhesive tape.

She took the boy to the police station to show the bruises on his back.

The woman said she took her son to Thammasat Chalerm Phra Kiat Hospital in Rangsit for an examination before proceeding to the police station to file the complaint.

She went to the school this morning, but the director and the teacher were not there.

Mrs Boonsuem claimed the teacher offerred her 50,000 baht to settle the case, but she did not accept it because she wanted her brought into the justice process.
