They are expected to teach moral values to the wards under their control. But two teachers of a primary school in Andhra Pradesh, instead of doing their job, were caught busy experimenting with Vatsayan`s recommended poses, during school time. And that too for several months.
The District Collector and Magistrate of Nalgonda district have placed Ramesh (35) and Geeta (42), teachers of the Government run primary school at Tallasingram, under suspension, after a CD showing the sexploits of the duo were found circulating in the local town.
Enquiries by the administration revealed that the duo would retire into the staff room around noon after assigning students some class work and would remain locked inside till the closing bells. Neither the students nor the parents had an inkling of the goings on. " We presumed that they are resting or correcting the class work after lunch," said one student Divya.
Police said that Ramesh used to record their sexploits in his camera phone from time to time. About a fortnight ago, after he had accumulated enough footage to make a CD, he approached a local video parlour with a request covert the same into a CD.
The video parlour owner, after examining the steamy stuff, calculated that he stands to make a quick buck by selling them to other clients. So he made dozen odd copies and started circulating them, besides handing over a copy to Ramesh.
Some in that closed circle send a copy of the CD to a local TV reporter, bringing the whole thing to limelight. Police said that have arrested Ramesh and booked him under the obscenities act.
"On the basis of prima facie evidence, I have placed the two teachers under suspension and ordered an enquiry into the episode by the District Education Officer," said Purushottam Reddy, District Collector.
Meanwhile. Studies have come to a standstill in the school to the detriment of students, as it is a two-teacher school. No new teacher has been posted yet.
Parents are now seething in anger. " Both of them are married and have kids. The lady teacher is again much senior in age. How could they do it? They must be perverted," said Mallesham, a parent and added that the duo should be dismissed from services.
