The video that has now gone viral shows the principal mercilessly thrashing the students till the cane breaks and one of the students fall down all because the students allegedly said that it was hot in the classroom.

Some of the students had allegedly complained of similar instances where the teachers have thrashed the students for trivial reasons.
