The Principal and four teachers of Kodikamam Varani Central College in Jaffna have been arrested for allegedly abusing a female student.
The Principal and three or the four teachers have been arrested for attempting to conceal the incident.
A biology teacher committed the offence during an extra class held at the school on June 7th and class mates of this girl have informed the Principal as well as the female Vice Principal, however action had not been taken at that point.
When the father of the victim complained to the principal, he has asked the complainant not to disclose the incident.
However the 46-year-old suspect was arrested after Kodikamam police informed the incident to the Child Protection authority. Later the Schools principal, his deputy and three other staff members have been arrested.
All five suspects were produced before Chavakachcheri Magistrate Court yesterday. They will be remanded until July 1st.
