A video of a teacher allegedly encouraging Hindu students to slap a Muslim student in UP's Muzaffarnagar went viral on Friday, prompting action from the Muzaffarnagar police who has taken cognisance of the incident and launched an investigation. 

In the purported video, the teacher Tripta Tyagi, is heard saying, "I have declared jitne bhi Mohammedan bachhe hai...", as students took turns to slap and beat up a Muslim student of the class. "Why are you not hitting him harder," the teacher is heard saying, even as the student wept uncontrollably. 

The Muzaffarnagar police has directed the station in-charge of Mansoorpur to investigate the case in the Neha Public School of Khubbapur village of Thanakshetra, wherein "a teacher is encouraging students to beat up a student in the class and making religious remarks," jurisdictional Khatauli Dr Ravi Shankar said.
