TENKASI: With anti-social elements turning the government-run Melagaram Higher Secondary School into a liquor bar and ganja den overnight, school management committee members and teachers have called on the authorities to put in place a police outpost in the area.

The town panchayat councilor and also one of the school management committee members, K Maheswaran, said that the drunks enter the school premises just after school hours and only come out on morning.

“Because of this threat, the school administration, with the help of some social activists, installed 16 CCTV cameras in the school two years ago. However, the disbelievers damaged all the cameras. They drink alcohol and smoke ganja on the veranda and sleep in the classrooms until morning,” Maheswaran said.

A student in Class 7 was caught selling a tobacco product recently. We have also heard of ganja peddlers selling parcels to students of schools and colleges in Melagaram for Rs 30-120,” a teacher said on condition of anonymity.
