Bhubaneswar, December 5 (LocalWire):A teacher of a government-run primary who had perpetrated alcoholic nuisance by kneeling down the students under scorching sun in Odisha’s Jajpur district was placed under suspension on Thursday.
The tipsy teacher- Makarand Mohanta- had kneeled down the students outside the school premises in public glare in a sudden act of alcoholic provocation.
The incident had occurred yesterday and the picture of punitive action shot on a smart phone by a pedestrian had gone viral.
The accused teacher has been placed under suspension for serious breach of discipline.
The administration has referred the matter to the higher-ups of school and mass education department for stringent action against him.
This sort of behavior on part of a man engaged in the noble profession like teaching is in bad taste and is highly uncalled for, said Jajpur Sub Collector, Mihir Mohanty.
