Yadgir Women Police have registered a case against Hayyalappa Mareppa Jagirdar, in-charge principal of Kitturu Rani Channamma Residential School in Warkanalli village in Yadgir taluk, on the charge of making attempts to sexually abuse girl students.

According to a release from Superintendent of Police C.B. Vedamurthy, the accused made attempts to sexually abuse girl students after luring them saying that he will give them the maximum marks in internal examination.
