Gujarat district’s Education officer ordered an inquiry after the videos of a couple, reportedly teachers at a primary school, kissing and cuddling went viral on social media on Saturday.
NG Vyas, District Primary Education Officer (DPEO) reportedly received multiple complaints from local residents of Sanjeli taluka along with the videos.
The videos were purportedly recorded in the classroom of the school situated in Bhaman village and were then shared on online platforms like WhatsApp and social media.
Vyas told TOI that the locals also revealed the names of the teachers but their identities could not be established as their faces were not clearly seen in the video. The videos were probably recorded by a mobile phone which was placed somewhere secretly.
The Taluka Primary Education Officer has been asked by the DPEO to conduct the inquiry and submit the report within a weeks’ time.
Vyas told news reporting agency PTI that some villagers had complained of ‘nuisance’ in this regard and had submitted the video. An appropriate action will be taken in connection with this matter, he added.
In another case, the Odisha police registered a case against the Mathematics teacher at a reputes school after several girl students complained of sexual harassment about him to the school authorities.
The girls were students of Class 6 and 7 in the school situated in Bhubaneswar and the teacher is reportedly absconding at the moment.
