Sources said Dyal had re­quested the dis­trict ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment on Jan­uary 21 to grant her pre-ma­ture re­tire­ment for the next three months. How­ever, the depart­ment re­jected her re­quest.

The DEO sent the in­quiry re­port to the ECI on Jan­uary 23. There­after, the ECI sent or­ders on Thurs­day to the DEO to trans­fer Dyal to Gov­ern­ment Hight School, Bathinda, and she was trans­ferred as per the or­ders.

How­ever, on Fri­day, the DEO re­ceived or­ders to sus­pend Dyal.

Talk­ing to Hin­dus­tan Times, Sudesh Ba­jaj, DEO (sec­ondary), con­firmed that Dyal had been sus­pended as per the or­ders re­ceived from the ECI.
