Residents of Velapadi on Monday laid siege to Velapadi Government High School demanding action against a teacher for allegedly misbehaving with a girl student. The education department has initiated a departmental enquiry against the teacher.

Tension gripped the school campus on Monday morning when the villagers gathered in large numbers and demanded action against M Srinivasan, for misbehaving with a girl student of class VIII, last Friday.

On information, Chief Education Officer (CEO) Noorjahan visited  the school and held talks with the villagers. The villagers withdrew the protest after the officials assured them that they would take action against the teacher following a departmental enquiry.

Panchayat president of Velapadi has given a petition to the CEO demanding the transfer of the teacher from the school. “I have sent a letter to the Joint Director of School Education in Chennai regarding the incident and also attached the petition given by the Velapadi panchayat president,” said the CEO.
