VILLUPURAM: Officials of a government school at Kiliyanur here received the shock of their lives when the institution, closed for the Diwali holidays and due to heavy rains, was reopened, after discovering that miscreants had broken into the premises and used it for anti-social activities, besides damaging furniture and tampering with answer sheets.
The school was reopened on Friday.
Police said they suspect that students of the higher secondary school could be involved in the incident as the answer sheets kept in the staff rooms were found torn and strewn around.
Opening the school after it was closed on October 18, teachers found the locks of the main office and staff rooms broken. Liquor bottles and condoms were also recovered from the premises, said a police source.
After receiving a complaint in this regard lodged by headmistress Shanthi, Kiliyanur police collected evidence from the spot.
The police said they suspect the role of the school students in the act of vandalism as several of them, who failed in an examination, were asked to bring their parents to meet the teachers for review.
