CHENNAI: Prime accused in the assault of a teacher inside a city school, D Arulanandhu, proprietor of Rich India Ltd., approached a Sessions Court on Tuesday seeking anticipatory bail.

A 35-member gang led by him assaulted S Bhaskar Raj, physical training instructor of Loyola Matriculation School, Kodambakkam, after he allegedly punished his son, a class VIII student, for whistling on November 20.

Police had arrested 25 persons in connection with the incident, including Rich India Ltd’s executive director Mahesh, gym in-charge Krishnamoorthy, vice-presidents Bala Subramani and Arunagiri, executive officer Velusamy, and chief business officer Dhaya Kumar.

Arulanandhu, a native of Trichy who had absconded immediately after the incident, also runs an IAS coaching centre in Kodambakkam. He was also a prime accused in a MLM (multi-level marketing) cheating case in 2003.

Police are also on a look out for his brother, Sebastian, native of Karumandapam, Tiruchy, who also has approached the court seeking anticipatory bail claiming innocence.

Meanwhile, P Senthil Nathan, Bala Subramanian and P Velusamy, arrested and detained in Puzhal prison have filed bail petitions before the Principal Sessions court. The Principal Sessions judge has directed the police to file reply and adjourned the matter to December 1.
