VILLUPURAM: Two teachers were held on the charges of self-immolation attempt

in front of the office of the District Educational Officer here on Tuesday.

The police said Vasudevan, headmaster of a primary school, was reportedly overlooked in promotion. Hence, taking up his cause, another secondary grade teacher Apollo, an office-bearer of the Tamil Nadu Primary School Teachers’ Federation (Anbalagan group), attempted immolation.

Since Vasudevan too was present there, the police took both of them into custody .
