Dharmapuri: In a shocking development, the Dharmapuri police on Thursday arrested three people including a teacher of a private tuition center for raping some schoolgirls studying in classes ten and plus-2.

Siva Kumar, Eswaran and another Sivakumar were produced before the Palacode magistrate on Thursday and were
remanded to judicial custody.
