Ara: District Education Officer (DEO), Bhojpuri, Suresh Prasad was suspended with immediate effect on October 18 in connection with alleged embezzlement of Rs. 10 crore meant for construction of buildings and classrooms in different government schools in the district.

Director, administration cum additional secretary, Education Department, Sushil Kumar, issued an order to this effect on October 18, 2016. Kumar, in his letter, said that the DEO would report to the headquarters and asked the DPO, Ram Pravesh Singh, to join as the acting DEO of the district.

The fund meant for the construction of school buildings was embezzled and the DEO was trying to shift the responsibility on the Headmasters of the schools concerned and so the Headmasters under the banner of Pradhanadhyapak Pronnati Sangharsh Morcha had resorted to fast unto death at the gate of the DEO office. An inquiry is going on into the scam.
