Police files FIR after 19 years

Strange are the ways of justice in Uttar Pradesh! The police filed an FIR against school management, headed by a former MP, after 19 years.

The FIR was lodged in a police station of Deoria, in eastern parts of the state, for irregularities committed in appointment of teachers in a school way back in 1993. The FIR was filed after the lower court's intervention.

Police has registered an FIR against five people including a former MP and Samajwadi Party leader Harikewal Prasad on the orders of the courts in connection with the irregularities in the appointment of teachers in his school in 1993  and other lapses including financial embezzlement.

The FIR was lodged at the Salempur police station on Sunday by one Pramod Singh on whose petition the court had ordered registering of a criminal case against the ex-MP, who is also the manager of the Jai Prakash Narain Laghu Madhyamik school, in Salempur Deoria.

The other accused in the FIR are the then Basic Shiksha Aadhakari (BSA) Awadhesh Narain and Principal of the school Ramjeet Prasad.

 The petitioner said that the ex MP and others had struck down his name in the teachers' list but appointed 16 teachers who were not even in the rolls in 1993 when the school was recognised to get government aid. When he questioned the management's decision, he was threatened with dire consequences.

The petitioner has also charged the former MP and SP leader on several financial irregularities in the school. He said that money meant for development of school was used by the management committee members for their own gains.
