LUCKNOW - About 150 teachers blocked the main Lucknow-New Delhi highway to protest the alleged rape and murder of a colleague in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur district, police said Sunday.

The teachers blocked traffic on the highway Saturday evening after their colleague Aradhana Tiwari was found dead Thursday in a field of Bhadesar village in Sitapur, 85 km from state capital Lucknow.

A police officer said a criminal case has been lodged against the teachers who blocked the main Lucknow-New Delhi highway. The teachers were cane charged and a case was registered against them under Section 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public function) of the IPC Sunday.
