Dharmapuri: A 52-year old headmaster of a government higher secondary school near Dharmapuri was booked for allegedly molesting a student, police said.
A case has been registered against K Panneerselvam for offences, including sexual harassment and kidnapping, on a complaint from the girl studying in 12th standard, District Superintendent of Police R.Sudhakar said.
Earlier, villagers, including the girl’s parents, staged a protest near the school at Mahendramangalam, 48 km from Dharmapuri.
They withdrew the stir at around 9 pm after the police informed them about the registration of the case.
Police said the headmaster had offered lift in his car to two girl students of Jiddandahalli who were walking to the school this morning. One of them refused it while the other girl boarded the car.
