Sir/Madam,

Do you have any apprehension that Police may arrest you?, whether FIR has been registered?, if so better you go for anticipatory bail, both section you have mentioned speaks about grievous hurt, 324 grievous with strong weapons, if Police filed under wrong sections you can very well fight against that like quash the FIR .

Dear Sir, Good Morning, You are not right, Indian Penal Code section 323 is used for causing of bodily injury only which is considered not severe in nature but section 324 is used against severe in nature causing of bodily injury with strick because you have used a stick -a weapon to beat the boy though the nature of injury may be mild, but using of stick is considered by law as weapon to attack a person that too a student is an offense. Do not worry, now a days people are more nervous against teacher's punishment to student, which they donot like , On those days, where people are very friendly with parents and will always say to the teacher, to beat his son allover body except his eyes till finishing study. But the situation has changed, if police are harassing you please get anticipatory Bail by a consulting a lawyer in your place. Regards, Selvam.S Advocate, Madurai .
