The district administration Sunday suspended three government teachers for allegedly watching obscene video films on the premises of Panigaon middle school here, an official said.
Mathura Basic Shiksa Adhikari Shyam Prakash Yadav said headmaster Mahavir Prasad, assistant teacher Mohar Singh and a class-IV employee Jayveer Singh were suspended with immediate effect. A contractual part-time teacher Praveen Kumar was, meanwhile, fired, he said.
Yadav said Assistant Basic Shiksha Adhikari had gone to inspect the matter, when he found a video clip on Kumar’s cellphone, depicting the headmaster watching the obscene videos. Yadav, on the direction of District Magistrate B Chandrakala, suspended all the accused and proceeded to lodge a case under cyber crime law.
Former Apple executive and Dwarka MLA Adarsh Shastri has also been included in the spokespersons’ list.
