The building is located in front of Tellipalai Durga Amman Temple and 75m from SLA camp.

School officials said the damage is estimated to be several thousand rupees, and that the security of the school and equipment have been compromised by the SLA action.

The school has relocated several times during the last 16 years and started functioning in the private building only recently.
