Teachers who are supposed to inculcate good moral values and see that children get quality education have been doing exactly the opposite in a school at Tumakaru district. They were filling water bottles with alcohol and distributing them to the students. Two teachers and the headmaster of the Government High School at Bomala Devi Pura in Koratagere taluk were suspended by the authorities for giving students liquor instead of water while on a field trip. Students of classes 8 to 10 were taken on a three day excursion to the coastal districts.
Deputy Director of Public Instruction of Madhugiri educational district who is probing the incident visited the school and placed the teachers and the headmaster under suspension during the pendency of the inquiry.
