Instructions to prepare list of illegally employed teachers
CBI has demanded CCTV footage for 180 days as per rules. But footage for more than seven days was not found here. After seeing the report, Justice asked Amrita Sinha that if so much money has been collected from this corruption, then why are you still not able to find out the mastermind of this corruption. Petitioner’s lawyer Ramesh Malik told the court that 42 thousand 949 people are still working who did not get jobs as per the rules. In that context, the court directed the CBI to immediately find the illegally employed teachers. After this, the CBI will have to prepare their list and hand it over to the court.
