Jammu: A government-run primary school in a remote village of Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur district has allegedly remained closed since August 15, prompting authorities?to order an inquiry against two teachers posted there.
The school, set up in a wooden structure at Nanansoo village on a hilltop, about 30 kilometers from Udhampur town, has remained closed since August 15 due to non-presence of the teachers posted there, the villagers claimed.
Chief Education Officer Udhampur Jattu Ram Bharadwaj said a probe has been ordered into the closure of the school. “The closure of the school for the past nine days, if true, is a serious issue, and we have immediately ordered a probe to unravel the truth,” said Bharadwaj. “We have taken a serious note of the matter and will not tolerate such a thing. Stern action will be taken against the teachers if the allegations are proved right,” he added.
Bharadwaj said he was in Jammu to attend a meeting and could not visit the school today.
