Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): District collector’s surprise inspection of government schools here on Wednesday augured trouble for three principals, a few teachers and peons. Annoyed over the school staffers’ dereliction of duties, low turnout of students and unkempt premises, the district collector Asheesh Singh ordered suspension of a teacher and peon, while show cause notices were issued to three principals and two teachers.
