In what could be termed as an extreme inhuman behaviour, a schoolteacher, who was the invigilator during the on-going Kerala State Board Exam (KSBE), reportedly denied a toilet break to a student. Subsequently, the 10th standard student at the Kadakkal Government Higher Secondary School in Kerala’s Kollam district was forced to defecate inside the exam hall itself.

The student, who was appearing for the Class X chemistry board exam on Tuesday, pleaded the invigilator multiple times to allow him to use the toilet as he was suffering from a stomach ache.

It was only after the student defecated publicly, the invigilator let him use the toilet. By the time the student came back from the toilet, the exam time was over and he could not even complete his exam.

However, the Kerala Child Rights Commission (KCRC) filed a case against the teacher.
