A 32-year-old woman government school teacher against whom a POCSO Act case had been booked earlier allegedly ended her life at her mother’s house at Manachanallur near here on Wednesday. 

Police sources said the Musiri All Women Police had registered a POCSO Act case against the teacher and named her as accused no. 2. The woman had been teaching English in the government school at Nettavelampatti.  The sources said the teacher was apparently depressed after the case was booked against her. She was also reportedly depressed that she did not have children.
