Shillong, April 27: The Meghalaya High Court has fixed the hearing on alleged irregularities in the selection of assistant teachers in government lower primary schools on May 5.
The hearing was fixed after taking up the case today in the division bench of Meghalaya High Court.
Sources said that the court wanted that the CBI report and report of the High Level Scrutiny Committee (HLSC) should be compiled, and submitted the list of all petitioners in connection with the case.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had referred back the case to the Meghalaya High Court to have a fresh look into the matter in the light of the two reports (CBI report, and report of the HLSC) that have been submitted in connection with the alleged irregularities in recruitment of assistant teachers in lower primary schools in the state.
Some of the affected teachers filed a special leave petition in Supreme Court after the Meghalaya education department terminated the services of ‘tainted’ teachers on February 28, 2014.
The ‘tainted’ teachers were terminated based on the report of the HLSC.
