Rina Khan, 41, is also accused of calling the young boy a ‘muppet’ along with physically assaulting him after he got a question wrong in a maths class.

Peter Arnold, prosecuting, told a court in Birmingham that the incident hurt the boy and he had been left ‘sad and scared’.

‘The defendant was upset about that and the long and short of it is that she had a plastic ruler in her hand and she hit the boy on the top of his head and the ruler broke,’ he added.
