A teacher in Uttar Pradesh who was alleged of working in 25 schools of 13 months and withdrew Rs 1 crore in salary was finally arrested on Saturday not just had multiple jobs but also had multiple identities.
As soon the news broke out police arrested Anamika Shulka on Saturday from Kasganj district when she went to submit her resignation after she was served a show-cause notice by the Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA), Anjali Agarwal.
According to the Kasganj BSA, Anamika Shukla, originally a resident of Kaimganj in Farukhabad is currently doing her B.Ed from the Raghukul Degree College in Gonda.
During interrogation, Anamika Shukla revealed that she was Anamika Singh but as questioning proceeded, it turned out that she was Priya from Farrukhabad.
The accused has been booked for cheating and forgery under IPC sections 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 467 (forgery of valuable security, will, etc.) and 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating).
According to the police, the woman claimed that she had paid Rs five lakh to a Mainpuri-based man to get this job. She used Anamika Shukla’s credentials to get the job while her real name is Priya, daughter of Mahipal, a resident of the Lakhanpur village of the Kayamganj police circle in Farrukhabad district.
The accused claimed that she paid the hefty amount to Raj, a Mainpuri-based man for the job, and was posted in Faridpur Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) since August 2018.
The police are now trying to zero in on the man who got her the job.
The police also believe that it could be possible that multiple candidates used credentials and ‘eligibility’ of Anamika Shukla – the real one remains elusive.
