A seemingly simple discussion over locking the windows at a school in Patna, Uttar Pradesh, India turned into a physical altercation between the headmistress and two teachers. Students of Koria Panchayat Vidyali saw their teachers rioting first inside the classroom and then outside in the field.
Viral videos show disturbing scenes of fighting in which one side requests to close classroom windows while the other refuses. Through the grilled window, the young students saw their headmistress Kanti Kumari and teacher Anita Kumari exchanging heated words.
As Kanti Kumari starts to leave the classroom, the teacher runs after her with slippers in hand and starts hitting her. Another Astani joins in and the two knock him to the ground in the arena. Another video shows the fight eventually being broken up by some men.
