Firemen who rushed to the scene were not able to extricate the victim.

> An Indian spiritual guru, who skipped a government hearing on sexual harassment of students at his school, was arrested by police.

Makkal Osai reported that the Sushil Hari International Residential School in Chennai, Tamil Nadu became the sixth institution to face investigation after students and alumni accused the guru of sexual harassment and abuse, and the administration for facilitating it.

A faculty member was also arrested on similar charges when many of the victims lodged complaints.

Siva Shankar, the spiritual guru and school founder, was summoned by the Tamil Nadu Commission for Protection of Child Rights to assist with the investigation.

However, he claimed that he had a heart attack, skipped the hearing and admitted himself into a hospital in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
