According to sources, S Vivekanandan (54), of Pillayarpatti near here, has been working as Assistant headmaster of GHSS, Marungulam, and has been handling Botony class. On July 10, he asked the girl to rewrite a class test for not writing with black ink. While she was giving the test, he made advances on her.
