Staff Reporter

POLLACHI: Over 600 persons staged a road blockade at Kanapathipalayam on Pollachi- Thrissur National Highway on Saturday demanding dismissal of the headmaster who was arrested on charges of child abuse.

The Polllachi police arrested headmaster Kanagaraj (42) on Friday on charges of bringing two fifth standard girls to a lodge here for sexual abuse. Education Department officials suspended him.

Protestors dispersed after revenue and police officials assured them that stringent action would be taken against the headmaster. Traffic on the NH was affected for four hours.
