[ZESTCaste] Teachers’ panel member held for beating up Dalit

Lucknow : Teachers' panel member held for beating up Dalit
The district president of the Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education
Teachers' Association, Neeta Awasthi, who was facing charges of
beating up a Dalit clerk at the District Inspector of School (DIOS)
office, was arrested on Thursday evening. Barabanki SP Navneet Rana
said Awasthi was arrested while she was on her way to Lucknow along
with an MLC, Devi Dayal Shasthri. Awdhesh Kumar, an accountant posted
with the Barabanki DIOS office, had lodged an FIR against Awasthi on
Thursday morning. He had alleged that on March 29, Awasthi had come to
his office and asked for details of government fund spent in the last
financial year on various heads related to teachers. As he refused to
furnish the details till the DIOS issued orders in this regard,
Awasthi reportedly beat him up. Awasthi was produced before the court
in the evening, from where she was sent to judicial custody.
