36 Teachers from Assam were detained for submitting fake documents

Assam Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Monday filed a complaint against 36 teachers in the Bodoland Territorial Region who were hired with “forged” Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) credentials (BTR).

The lawsuit was filed on Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s directive after a complaint that teachers in Kokrajhar, one of BTR’s four districts, submitted fake TET documents to the director of education and were hired. An investigation was performed, and evidence supporting the charges was discovered.

“The inquiry so far has uncovered that faked TET certificates were presented as if the accused qualified despite failing the test, that fake roll numbers were used in some cases, and that successful applicants’ roll numbers were utilised by unsuccessful candidates to generate forged certificates. The candidates got appointment letters through dishonest and fraudulent means, creating long-term harm to the state’s educational system and endangering the careers of a number of innocent pupils “On Monday evening, Assam police released a statement.

Teachers in government schools must have a TET certified certificate in order to be hired.

The cases were filed under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 120(B) (criminal conspiracy), 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for cheating), and 471 (submission of false documents).
