Villagers of Dunnavanipeta in Vajrapukottur mandal in Srikakulam district, publicly boycotted a woman, Sujatha, for not admitting her children in the local government school. Sujatha said that she had already paid fees to a private school and so she admitted them there. Village panchayat elders decided to boycott her and consequently cut off power and water supply to her house. With this, Sujatha approached the police. The villagers said that if the number of students is less in a government school, the school will be shut down.
