Police Station, Domana
Sub: Complaint of Harassment against Mrs Surinder Paul Kaur, Primary
Teacher, MHAC School ,Nagbani-Jammu.
We all teachers of Maharaja Harisingh Agricultural Collegiate School, Nagbani Jammu (Tawi) file a complaint against Mrs Surinder Paul Kaur, for Harassing & threatening most of us on regular basis. Her written letter dated 13.05.2016 addressed to Supervisory Head Mrs Sunita Jamwal, is another proof of her quarrelsome behavior, threatening approach & giving harassment to others. (Complete correspondence is attached).Contents of her threatening letter, clearly speaks of her dictatorial approach & negative attitude with other Senior teachers, even with the supervisory Head.
Her registration of FIR against the Principal is another step of giving harassment to others, for her personal agenda & satisfaction.
Most of us have known Principal Alok Betab for more than 27 years. His behaviour with female staff members has been impeccable & above reproach. We condemned such false allegations mady by Mrs Surinder Paul Kaur in the strongest words & request you to take action against the lady under law.
Mrs Surinder Paul Kaur is in the habit of putting allegations & blames on other without any logic & proof. Her attitude & behaviour with the colleagues is harsh & many a times intolerable. She also threatens staff members, misbehaves & shows no co-operation during the routine discharge of duties. Although she sits in the staff room, but no one feels comfortable with her, due to her harsh & problematic attitude.
Mrs Surinder Paul Kaur, has a long history of problems & episodes ever since her joining in the school. She started tendering apologies to the school from the year 2007 for her irresponsible behaviour.
In the year 2009, she applied for one year Ex-India leave, with a request that she is to stay with her husband who was posted in Dubai. In fact she does not reached Dubai & instead remained disappeared for about 6 months, speaks the type of person she is.
In the year 2010 her annual increment was with held by the school.
In 2013, she again expressed regrets in writing for her irresponsible behaviour. In 2014 school received a serious complaint from parents against this lady staff.
With this back ground, the trouble (her conflict with school authorities) started with in Aug/Sept – 2014
A brief note :-
She applied for Ex-India Leave on 07-07-2014 & the case was forwarded to DAV HQ’s Delhi on 08-07-2014.
Leave case without approval was sent back by the DAV CMC, New Delhi with few observations.
She came a day late & even was allowed to join duty on the same day i.e, 26-08-2014. She was also give a letter that your leave is not yet approved & hence you are requested to deposit a fresh affidavit with required language & few documents for getting the post-facto leave approval for DAV CMC, New Delhi. Instead of submitting proper reply, she started writing threatening letters to the Principal, on 29-08-2014, 01-09-2014, 04-09-2014 & Principal kept on writing request & assurance letters (Record available)
She dispatched a complaint to DAV CMC Delhi on 06-09-2014 & to the SHO on 07-09-2014. Contents & allegations in all the letters written to Principal, to DAV CMC Delhi & to SHO, Dumana, were totally different.
