Krishnagiri: A government school teacher was placed under suspension on charges of sharing an obscene video in the WhatsApp group meant for his school teachers. “Gopinath, a secondary grade teacher of primary school in Ariyanapalli village of Shoolagiri block is under suspension,” K.P. Maheshwari, CEO for Krishnagiri district told DC.
Sources said, the government teacher was punished for sharing obscene video in the WhatsApp group meant for the teachers working in his school. “He had sent such videos earlier but was pardoned with a warning not to repeat again. This time, we gave a complaint to our department officials. He was suspended for his shameless act,” a lady teacher of his school told reporters on anonymity.
In yet another incident, a government teacher working in the uphill Noorunthusami Malai was suspended for closing the school much before the working time was over.
He was punished after the WhatsApp video of the panchayat union middle school teacher locking the gate of the school to go home earlier, had gone viral.
This is the second time Krishnamoorthi was suspended. Earlier, he was placed under suspension for alleged misappropriation of funds when he had worked in Mavanatti government school.
