The assessment of answer books of Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad's annual examination was suspended for sometime at Government Queens College in Varanasi on Saturday. Some teachers boycotted the assessment work following alleged indecent behaviour by principal Narendra Dev Pandey.

The work resumed after the intervention of District Inspector of Schools (DIoS) Onkar Shukla. Sources said Pandey, who is also deputy controller of assessment work, misbehaved with the teachers when they reached the college for assessment work in the morning.

Soon the teachers got agitated and boycotted the work. However, the DIoS immediately reached the college and pacified the teachers. He also removed the principal from assessment duty and made vice-principal MK Khan the deputy controller of the assessment work.

“Yes there was some problem in assessment work, but everything is under control now and the teachers are doing the work,” DIoS, Onkar Shukla told HT.

The assessment work is being conducted at five centres, including Queen's College, Bhartiya Shiksha Mandir Inter College (Englishialine), Gujrat Vidya Mandir (Bhaironath), Mahabodhi Inter College (Sarnath) and PN Singh Inter College (Ramnagar).
