A nine-year-old kid died after a monk allegedly beat him ruthlessly and slammed his head into a pillar, as reported by Daily Mail.

Nine-year-old Buddhist novice – Wattanapol Sisawad was assaulted by Monk Suphachain Suthiyano, 64 with a bamboo stick repeatedly and banged his head in the pillar at the temple in the close to Bangkok. Following this, the child fell into the coma. One of the members of hospital staff has informed AFP today that the boy passed away on Thursday according to Deccan Chronicle.

The monk could not control his anger when the young disciple disrupted the prayer session with his ‘playful’ behaviour, following which he assaulted the child. The monk has been charged with assault previously. The police department said that the charge would be elevated to ‘assault resulting in death’ once the police get the official confirmation. A Institute of Forensic Medicine’s official revealed that the autopsy of the boy’s body had been done and the mortal remains were given to his family.

Devastated mother of a boy, Sukunya Tunhim told the Thai media that she won’t ever forgive the Monk for snatching away her son.

The Logical Indian take

It is incredibly disheartening to know that a young life was lost because of somebody’s rage. The relationship between a monk and his novice is akin to the student-teacher relationship. Corporal punishment is extremely dangerous and should not be accepted. Children understand and learn more when dealt with love and care rather than by punishment.
