Nagapattinam: Coming to the aid of six students, education department officials have permitted them to write the ongoing SSLC public exam and suspended three teachers of the government school for barring them from taking the exam citing lack of attendance.

Following protests by the parents of the six students of the government higher secondary school at Keezhaperumpallam who were not allowed to appear for the Tamil paper I exam on March 19, district education officer Rengarajan conducted an inquiry and ordered the suspension of the headmistress and two other teachers, officials said.

The DEO subsequently allowed the students to appear for all the examinations from Mar 24. Further inquiry was on.
