CHENNAI: Days after a physical education teacher of a city school was assaulted by a mob for allegedly punishing a student, a Chennai police team arrested the prime accused, D Arulanandhu, the father of the student, from an undisclosed location in Tiruchy on Sunday.

Angry parents came on to the street the next day demanding the arrest of Arulanandhu and the gang he allegedly sent, even accusing the police of going slow on the investigation.  Caught in an uncomfortable position after the delay in even registering the FIR, the police first arrested over 20 persons allegedly involved in the assault, and then shunted out the deputy commissioner and assistant commissioner of Kodambakkam. An official confirmed to Express that Arulanandhu has been secured, but did not elaborate. There are about 35 people accused in the case, including Arulanandhu’s wife, A Aruna (30), director of Rich India, and his brother, Sebastian.
