A schoolboy who sustained severe injuries due to an assault on him by a monk who works for the school as a teacher has been admitted to hospital in Passara.

As the schoolboy hasn’t done his home work, the monk had assaulted him needing medical attention. The schoolboy, a grade six student, was admitted to the Passara Hospital with head injuries.

Police sources said the incident had happened last Friday in a school in Madugasthalawa in Passara.
