Action in textbooks sale case

Betul, MP, Jan 22 (UNI) Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Director
Surjeet Singh Chouhan, who is Madhya Pradesh Chief
Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's brother, has said
that action would be initiated against the District Project Coordinator in a case relating to seizing of textbooks -- that were supposed to have been distributed free of cost under the Rajiv Gandhi Shiksha Mission -- from a scrap-dealers' godown.
''The Chief Minister has taken a very serious view
of the matter, formed different investigation teams
and sought a report. A statewide probe is underway. On
November 13, 2006, a similar case surfaced in
Shajapur,'' Mr Chouhan told UNI over telephone. He
probed the matter in various areas of the district
yesterday. Mr Chouhan is to submit his report today to the Chief Minister, School Education Minister and the
Principal Secretary.''Three teachers, who were found prima facie guilty,have been suspended. The scrap-dealer and two teachers have been jailed,'' he added.
