Village panchayat president dismissed

TIRUNELVELI: District Collector G. Prakash has dismissed the village panchayat president of Kulasekarapatti near Paavoorchathram for misappropriation of funds.

After the embezzlement was detected in 2007, the Collector ordered the dismissal of Manivannan, who got an interim stay from court. While granting it the court had maintained that the Collector was the appropriate authority to take the final decision.
