15 teachers at these MP govt schools were found coming drunk at schools: Reports

Bhopal/IBNS: At least 15 teachers were found coming to classes drunk regularly at various government schools in a Madhya Pradesh district, a review report has revealed.

The disturbing detail has been disclosed in a letter issued by the Block Education Officer (BEO) from Mehadwani in the tribal-dominated Dindori district, some 460 km from the capital Bhopal.

The letter, issued by BEO HS Masram, states that 15 teachers across various government schools in the Mehadwani development block are frequently attending school under the influence of alcohol.

"He (the teacher) comes sometimes. He is always drunk. Sometimes we read and then he goes away," said a Class 8 student.

Additionally, it has been reported that nine teachers have not been attending school for several years, and seven teachers violate civil service rules due to having two wives.

"He comes drunk to school every day. His name is Santosh Kumar Ahirwar. He teaches Maths. We tried stopping him from leaving, but he got away. It is his daily routine. He also comes in late and leaves early.  This affects children's studies," NDTV quoted a teacher at the school.

Masram has recommended strict action against these teachers.

Dr Santosh Shukla, the Assistant Commissioner of the Tribal Department in Dindori, appreciated Masram's initiative during a conversation with NDTV and assured that appropriate action would be taken against the accused teachers.
