Govt teacher abuses principal, faces inquiry
BATALA: In an embarrassment to the state education department, a government school teacher, Gurmeet Kaur, was caught on camera hurling abuses at the principal in the presence of dozens of students, here on Friday.
The incident happened at the Government Senior Secondary School, Veela Bajju, falling under the jurisdiction of Gurdaspur district.
The incident was recorded by a student, who later uploaded it on social networking sites following which district education officer (secondary), Rakesh Bala transferred the erring teacher to Buttar Kalan school. She will also face a departmental probe.
Denying the allegations, Kaur said, “He (principal) has been harassing me mentally. A few days back, I had asked some students playing kabadi to wear a patka (head wear) instead of turban which led to a dispute. He insulted me during the assembly in front of staff members and students,” she said.
