The correspondent of Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan Senior Secondary School & Jr College (PSBBSS), where nine-year-old Ranjan died following a swimming class, was on Friday arrested by police on charges of causing death by negligence.
PSBBSS correspondent Sheila Rajendran, who also held the posts of deputy dean and director of the school, became the sixth person to be arrested in connection with the incident. Sheila was placed under arrest and produced before a Magistrate. Earlier in the day, Ranjan’s family cremated his body as a pall of gloom descended on the neighbourhood in Alwarthirunagar. Former deputy chief minister MK Stalin and ex-mayor M Subramaniam were among those who paid last respects.
Meanwhile, police visited the school and asked the management not to use the swimming pool until the probe is over.
