Valaichenai school principal missing, school shuts down in protest

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 February 2006, 12:15 GMT]
Valaichenani Hindu College was shut down by the students and fellow teachers on Friday in protest against the alleged kidnapping of their principal Thursday. "The family of the principal is probably under threat and confusion. The truth is no one knows the fate of Mr. Thavarasa," a school teacher who did not wished to be named told TamilNet. The family is yet to file a complaint of their missing father, sources added.

Unidentified person had visited the school and asked the principal to accompany him to meet "an important person," at the nearby Pechiyappan Temple grounds, the teacher said.

"Our principal said he was busy at that time but offered to come at a later time," the teacher said, detailing what he has learned from his collegues.

"Mr Thavarasa, with the help of a new employee at the school, went to the temple grounds in a motorbike half an hour later."

"Then another motorbike without a licence plate, approached the grounds, the person in the bike talked to the principal and took him in his motorbike."

"Later, the principal was taken in another motorbike via the main road," the teacher said adding that no one has since heard anything on the fate of their principal.
