Trigger Warning: This article contains details of child abuse that may be distressing to readers.

Adults need to be held accountable when it comes to using abusive methods of discipline, whether it's physical, psychological or emotional. A group of young boys between the ages of 9 and 10 was forced to strip naked as punishment for running late to school. The distressing incident took place in a private school in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, called Chaitanya Bharathi School. Instead of warning the young children, the boys in grades 3 and 4, were made to strip off all their clothes and stand naked not just under the blazing sun but also in full view of teachers and other students. The six boys had their pants down to their ankles and their arms up in the air, reports The News Minute.

Parents and activists have slammed the principal, Maharaja Naidu, who also owns the school. A video of the children's punishment came to the attention of child rights activists who have since condemned the act. Many parents staged protests the next day and a few of them even spoke out about their children being punished for not finishing their homework. Activists claim that authorities have been trying to cover up the issue and sweep it under the rug. In fact, Maharaja Naidu absconded soon after this issue came to light. Many were shocked as to how an educator could think of inflicting shame and pain upon impressionable young children.
