Parents of children studying in Panchayat Union Primary School at Weaver's Colony near Thokavadi on Erode Road in Tiruchengode Taluk staged a road roko on Wednesday morning seeking action against a teacher for his alleged misbehaviour with girls in the school. The parents also refused to send their children to the school.

Tiruchengode Rural Police said the school with a strength of 36 students from classes one to five has two classrooms and only one teacher-cum-headmistress – A. Selvi. Selvi was on leave on Monday and Tuesday and Manickam (34) from Vitampalayam was deputed to handle classes in her place.
