Pakistani Schoolboy Dies After Punishment

Islamabad, Sep 20 (IANS): A schoolboy in Pakistan's Rawalpindi city died after doing multiple sit-ups as punishment for not doing his homework.

Meher Ali fell down the stairs and died Monday while returning to his class room after the punishment.

Principal Patras Bhatti told Dawn: "Yes, Meher Ali and some other students were awarded the `uthak-baithak' as punishment for not doing their home work. But none of them was tortured - not even so much as slapped."
