A Secretary of a high school, misusing his powers and preparing bogus educational documents, appointed his daughter-in-law as a regular teacher in the school. And thus, cheated the Maharashtra Government by way of salaries to the illegally appointed teacher for over three years.

According to police, the Secretary Vijay Vaidya (74), resident of Pethkar Galli, Kelibag Road, Mahal in Nagpur, during his tenure from January 2, 2009 to January 31, 2012 in Nav Pratibha High School, Siraspeth, Umred Road, misused his powers and prepared bogus BEd educational qualification documents of his daughter-in-law Anagha Ketan Vaidya and appointed her as teacher in the School. BEd qualification is mandatory for appointment of teacher in any school across the State. Anagha served as teacher for three years and received salaries to the tune of lakhs of rupees on the basis of bogus documents. This way, both the Secretray (now retired) Vijay Vaidya and Anagha Ketan Vaidya cheated the Government. However, after Vijay Vaidya’s retirement as Secretary, the bogus episode got exposed. Babulal Zade, working in the School, subsequently lodged a cheating and forgery complaint with Imambada Police Station against both Vaidyas. Police are now probing the matter.
