Cuddalore, Oct 22 (UNI) A 12th standard girl student allegedly committed suicide today by hanging herself inside her classroom at a private school in this district.
Police sources, quoting the school authorities, said the student, Anandavalli, a hosteler, had refrained from interacting with the other students since the last two days.
On being informed, the girl's parents and about 500 people from her native Samuttikuppam village rushed to the school. They termed it as a murder by the school teachers and the hostel warden and demanded their immediate arrest.
They also put-up a blockade on the Cuddalore-Panruti road, disrupting traffic for a while. Police intervened and pacified the agitators.
The body was later handed over to the parents after conducting a post mortem.
