Mangaluru: Additional Commissioner of department of school education and literacy, Kalaburagi division Dr Akash Shankar has begun inquiry into allegations on derogatory remarks made by a teacher of St Gerosa English Higher Primary School in Mangaluru, on Monday.

He said that he will complete the inquiry at the earliest and will submit a report to the state government. “As the inquiry is in progress, I do not wish to reveal anything. I will make an honest effort to conduct an inquiry and will submit the report to the government,” he told mediapersons.

“I have come to Mangaluru as a part of fact finding on the incident and held meetings with the officials. Concerned officers have briefed me and furnished me with the preliminary information,” he said.

He had held a meeting with the officials from the department at the DDPI office in Mangaluru.

It may be recalled that parents claimed that a class seven teacher made derogatory remarks while taking up a lesson “Work is Worship.” Following a day-long protest led by Mangalore City South MLA D Vedavyasa Kamath in front of the school on February 12, the school authorities suspended teacher Sr Prabha. Based on a complaint, the Mangaluru South Police had registered an FIR against Mangalore City South MLA D Vedavyas Kamath, Mangaluru City North MLA Dr Y Bharath Shetty, Bajrang Dal leader Sharan Pumpwell and others in connection with the protest. Later, the government appointed Dr Akash Shankar to probe into the allegations.
