Clinic in headmaster's office in UP school

Clinic in headmaster's office in UP school

Officials of the basic education department in Uttar Pradesh's Rampur district expected to see stacks of books, registers and other items  generally found at schools when they conducted a surprise  inspection at the junior high school at Bhaiya Nagla village.

Instead, they found stacks of medicines and other items used by doctors. The locals told them the office was being used as a private clinic by a doctor  since the headmaster seldom came to the school.

The school building was also found locked during the inspection conducted on Wednesday.  

According to reports, the block education officer was told by villagers that the school rarely opened.

Taking a serious view of the matter, the basic education officials have ordered for stopping payment of salary  to the headmaster and  another teacher who was posted there.

"A show-cause notice was also served on the duo... they have been asked to explain... a probe has also been ordered into the matter... stern action will be taken against them,"  a senior official in Rampur said.

The  officials said  surprise inspections  will be conducted at all the primary and junior high schools in the district in the next few days.

There have been earlier instances of school buildings in the state being used to hold liquor parties. In one instance, a teacher was found drinking inside a classroom.
