Bengal teacher commits suicide over teachers' recruitment scam

KOLKATA: Tumparani Mondal Parua (30), a teacher at a state-run school in Nandigram, East Midnapore district of West Bengal, reportedly committed suicide out of fear that her name would be on the list of teachers being investigated for their involvement in the massive teachers' recruitment fraud. Her hanging body was seen from her residence late Sunday night.

The deceased's family members have notified the local police that a list that recently went viral contained the names of some teachers whose names were allegedly being investigated in light of the various ongoing legal proceedings in the Calcutta High Court pertaining to the teachers' recruitment. The victim's name was reportedly on the list that went viral, which devastated her mentally.

The body was sent for a post-mortem by the police, who have also opened an investigation into the incident.

As per records of the West Bengal School Service Commission, Mondal Parua was selected as a teacher for Class IX and X in 2016. In 2019 she joined the Debipur Milan Vidyapith school in Nandigram as a Bengali teacher. She was an original resident of the Burunda Village under Chandipur Police Station in East Midnapore district. She got married in 2014.

The victim's name appeared initially on the list of 186 names of "wrongly suggested" candidates that the WBSSC posted on its website on Thursday night, local people perceived. However, it was then found that her name was not on the list of "wrongly suggested," and instead, her concern about having her services terminated was brought on by the allegedly viral list.
