Meghalaya High Court hears petition on teachers' appointment
From A Correspondent
SHILLONG, May 17: The Meghalaya High Court today heard the petition seeking its intervention to order a CBI inquiry examining the crimil angle pertaining to the appointment of assistant teachers in government-run lower primary schools.
As per the petition filed by Agnes Kharshiing who has been pursuing the case, the many FIR’s filed with the East Khasi Hills police for crimil investigation against those involved in the scam went in vain as no action was taken.
The petitioner sought the intervention of the High Court for a CBI inquiry since many aggrieved candidates are still awaiting justice.
Taking up the matter, Chief Justice, Dinesh Maheshwari, said that the petitioner (Agnes Kharshiing) appears to be the person who had filed the FIR’s in the matter and has knowledge of the pendency of the matter in the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Maheshwari said that looking at the issues sought to be raised it is expected of the petitioner to state all the relevant facts with all specifications and copies of the necessary documents. The High Court said that relevant documents including the copies of orders passed by the respective Courts have not been placed on record. The next hearing into the matter will be taken up after two weeks.
