In what appears to be a case of jilted lover committing crime, a 23-year-old teacher was hacked to death by a man in a private school.
The crime was done in Tamil Nadu’s Cuddalore district.
The victim has been identified as S Ramya, who taught Maths in Gayathri Matriculation School.
Police said that she was alone in her classroom when the suspect Rajashekhar targeted her.
Police suspect that refusal of marriage proposal could be the reason behind the attack.
Police said that the suspect Rajashekar had known the teacher from college days and had even asked for woman’s hand in marriage from her parents.
It appears that the refusal became the reason for him to commit this crime, said police sources.
