The local police have booked a former teacher of Jainendra Public School, Sector 1, for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of the school management committee members.

An FIR has been filed against Poonam Thakur under Section 295-A, 298, 420, 447 and 120 B of the IPC at the Sector 7 police station on the complaint of school secretary Tarun Jain, said the police.

Jain alleged that on August 14, Thakur, in collusion with other teachers, came to the office of the management committee and used filthy language against the members. She also spoke wrong against their religion, he said.

“The management committee had found that Thakur had not performed her duties properly and some type of irregularities, mischief and embezzlement was there in the accounts. On August 14, the management committee suspended her with immediate effect,” Jain told the police.

“The decision was communicated to her on August 15. Despite that she wrongfully entered the office of the principal by lodging a frivolous complaint with regard to a theft in the school with a mala fide intention to remain in possession of the office of principal so that the evidences of irregularities could be managed,” Jain added. — TNS
