Chennai Student Dies By Suicide: A Tamil Nadu teacher has been arrested for allegedly having an affair with a minor girl student, police said. Police suspect that the 17-year-old student committed suicide after breaking up with the teacher.
The teacher works in a government-aided school in Ambattur, which is just 20 kilometers from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu. Police said she had been tutoring the boy for three years since he was in class 10th. Police said that he sometimes used to visit her house along with other students.

The boy had committed suicide a month ago after the 12th examination. His mother suspected that there was some other reason behind his death. Police claim that they found pictures of the teacher with the boy on his phone, which eventually led to his arrest.
