A male elementary school teacher who was reportedly bullied by four colleagues is seen with his arms pinned back （腕を後ろ手に固定されて）while being forced to eat spicy curry.
A local education board revealed that a male teacher in his 20s complained of being bullied by four senior colleagues, claiming they daubed curry on his body and rubbed spicy soup against his eyes.

According to the explanation of events provided by the man’s lawyer, the bullying began in the spring of 2018.
The victim was reportedly slapped almost every day, had his face pushed toward a kettle filled with boiling water, and had his jeans torn, among other bullying.
He was reportedly also subjected to verbal abuse（暴言）, including that his father was scum（浮きカス→（口語）くず、かす）, had water dripped onto handouts he was going to give to students, and was warned against coming to observe other lessons on the grounds that he “would make the classroom dirty.”
His tormentors（苦しめる人） climbed on the roof of his car and also coerced him into sending a sexual message to a female colleague.
One of four teachers accused of bullying their colleagues at an elementary school in Kobe also encouraged pupils to defy authority and create chaos in class.
The teacher told children to rebel so as to “ruin class.”
When questioned by the education board, some of the offenders are said to have shrugged off those deeds as just “pranks.”
The victim, who has been absent from work since the start of September due to poor health, is also expected to submit an application for workers compensation for public employees.
