FIR lodged against 16 Tripura teachers for fake certificate

Agartala, Nov 12 (UNI) The Education department has lodged FIR against 16 graduate and post graduate teachers for obtaining job with fake academic certificates, recently in the government schools in the state.
The case was filed against the teachers on Sunday after the government decided to ensure probity in their services. After assuming office in March this year, the BJP-IPFT government had released offer of appointment to 885 graduate and 125 post graduate teachers after they qualified in teachers’ eligibility test.
The department has received a large number of complaints against the selected candidates for possessing fake BEd certificates from various institutions outside the state, said education minister Ratan Lal Nath.
Altogether 132 allegations were received by the department and all of them were sent to the respective institutions and the universities for verification. In the meantime, the department issued an open call to all the selected candidates to surrender offer if they did not have genuine certificates.
"I personally urged all the accused to come voluntarily to return the offer. A good number of people responded and sought pardon for their mistake and we excused them. In the meantime, certificate verification report from the institutions has reached to us. We found 16 of them did not return the offer and have joined in the service," Nath stated.
The further investigation began against those teachers and the charge of corruption.
The FIR was filed under section 466 and 471 of Indian Penal Code. If the allegations are proved in police investigation they will be liable for 7 years imprisonment and fine.
The further departmental investigation is going on against 62 others.
