Kallakurichi Kaniyamoor Private School Chemistry teacher Haripriya and Mathematics teacher Keerthika have been arrested.

Kallakurichi: Haripriya, a chemistry teacher and Keerthika, a maths teacher of the school, have been arrested in connection with the death of a class 12 student in a private school in Kaniyamur, Kallakurichi district.

The two teachers were arrested based on the complaint filed by the deceased student’s mother. A complaint has been raised that the arrested teachers insulted the student. The principal, secretary and school Chariman of the school have already been arrested.

The daughter of Ramalingam from Periya Nesalur in Cuddalore district was studying in the 12th standard at Shakti School in Kaniyamur near Chinna Salem in Kallakurichi district.

On the 13th, he reportedly died after falling from the school hostel floor. However, the relatives of the student continued protesting for 4 days without buying the body, claiming that there was a doubt in the death of the student.

In this case, former students and student organizations have formed a WhatsApp group to join the protest in support of the student. Following this, around 500 people protested in front of the school in Kaniyamur around 9.30 am.

When the police came to know about this, in the next 15 minutes, more than a thousand protestors gathered and took part in the blockade of the Chennai-Salem road.

Around 11 am, the police used a light baton on the protestors who broke through the barricade and entered the school premises. At that time, as there were only 300 policemen, more than a thousand protesters could not be controlled.
