SRINAGAR: Authorities have suspended five government teachers, who along with the Zonal Education Officer (ZEO) had closed five schools during working hours to enjoy the feast in a nearby public school.
As per a news report, the Chief Education Officer (CEO) Reasi in an official communiqué had said that the complex head Shajroo after receiving a complaint regarding the closure of five schools during working hours paid a visit to those schools.
“The complex head found these schools locked during working hours and thus submitted a report along with photographs showing that these schools were locked,” it reads.
The communiqué further reads that an enquiry committee consisting of the Principal of HSS Channa, Riaz Hussain Senior Lecturer of HSS Mahore and the Headmaster of HS Jamlan was constituted to conduct an in-depth inquiry regarding the matter.
“The committee submitted a detailed report in which the committee confirmed the closure of the schools that too without the permission of higher authorities.”
“ZEO Mahore instead of taking action against the HOls of those schools for closing the schools, he himself participated with them in enjoying the feast at MS Tramala and this office has recommended for suitable punishment warranted under rules against ZE Mahore to DSEJ,” reads the communiqué.
The CEO said that neither headmaster of MS Tramala, in any case, is authorised to serve direction to any school for closing the schools nor HOls of these schools have the authority to close the schools without permission of higher authorities as such all these Hols need strong action to be taken against them.
“Therefore, HOls of all the schools are put under suspension with immediate effect and attached to the office of CEO Reasi,” it reads. (KNO)
