A school teacher and an Anganwadi worker in a Tamil Nadu village were caught having sex at the school premises, which led to a group of angry villagers thrashing the accused teacher.
The teacher at Namakkal's S Uduppam government school was caught with the Anganwadi worker while they were having sex after school hours. The two were having an affair for the past couple of months.
The woman works for rural child care development and is associated with the school and the two would hook up after school hours.
School students have seen the couple on several occasions and complained to their parents. A group of parents on Tuesday charged at the couple when they were again found in a compromising position.
Pudansandai Police has picked up the accused teacher for further questioning after he was beaten up and made to sit on the school lawn where villagers shamed him and hurled abuses.
The school headmaster has said the disciplinary action will be taken against the accused teacher while the Anganwadi worker will also be reported at her workplace.
