A 24-year-old teacher was Tuesday suspended for allegedly writing a love letter to a seventh standard girl in a government school.

Official sources said Paul Mohan, teaching at the Panchayat Union Middle School at Adailaiyoor, allegedly placed the letter written in English, professing his love, inside the notebook of the girl a few days ago.

Another teacher had accidentally found the letter on Tuesday and brought it to the headmaster's attention.

Following a complaint from the headmaster, the Assistant Elementary Education Officer Palnivel issued orders today placing the teacher under suspension, sources said.
