I went to the school today (Thursday) and questioned the students and other staff members about headmaster Bankey Lal Pandey. The school staff showed me three empty boxes of milk powder weighing 500 gram each. They told me that 1.5 kg of milk powder mixed in water was distributed among the 63 students. I suspended the headmaster for other irregularities in the school,\u201d he added.\n\n\n\nHe further added that there were complaints against him that he is not regular. \u201cHe was not present in the school on Wednesday without informing his seniors.\u201d\n\n\n\nHowever, Assistant BSA Shailpati Yadav, who had accompanied the senior BSA official stated the allegations were true.\n\n\n\n\u201cThere were two boxes of milk powder of 500 gram each available at the school. These were served to the students in the mid-day meal after mixing in water. When we went there (school), we found that one kilogram of milk powder was served to the students on Wednesday,\u201d said Yadav.
