Palakkad: In a bizarre incident, a school teacher allegedly cut the hair of over 90 students to maintain the school code at government-run Kendriya Vidyalaya.

On Monday, after the school assembly, Pradeep Raveendran, allegedly pulled out boys who had not trimmed their hair. He lined them up behind the assembly hall before setting out on his 'disciplinary mission' with a pair of scissors brought from home, sources said.

The episode lasted for over three class-periods without the knowledge of either the principal or his colleagues.

Angry parents lodged a complaint yesterday against the teacher with the school authorities, after which local people also intervened in the issue.

The principal of the school at Kanjikode area later convened a meeting of parents during which the teacher tendered an unconditional apology.

School authorities have informed the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghathan, Chennai, and sought an explanation from the teacher concerned.

However, School principal S Nalayini said that most of the 'affected' students and their parents have given in writing that they were not insisting on action against the teacher and asked the authorities not to relax any school code in the light of the 'sorry' incident.
