Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the state vigilance commission which was set up by the government in March 2009 has submitted its report and unearthed as many as 1156 bogus teachers and 1096 cases of appointments made under “doubtful circumstances.” As many as 1084 teachers were physically unavailable for verification. The SIT submitted its report to the government on February 26, chief secretary, Laltahra said in a statement. However, the SIT was unable to submit final and conclusive reports of its investigations in certain areas particularly under the jurisdictions of DIS, Dimapur, Niuland and Longleng due to lack of adequate cooperation from the government employees working under these establishments. Undue interference from outside elements was also one of the reasons for the inconclusive report, the statement added. Lalthara said that the investigations in these areas, as well as other areas, would continue to be operative till satisfactory results were obtained. It was informed that the government would be setting up a committee of senior officers under the chairmanship of commissioner and secretary, school education, Mhathung Kithan to look into the report within a week. The committee would then put up to the cabinet the course of punitive, remedial and preventive measures needed to be taken by the government. Lalthara said the department was confident that the report would enable the government to take appropriate measures to cleanse the malaise and appealed the citizens, NGOs and civil societies to lend their moral support and positive help in whatever ways they could. The state government expressed “deepest appreciation” to the SIT for its painstaking efforts in investigating the case, in spite of many difficulties and trying circumstances under which the investigation had to be carried out.
