“I had sent the division education officer to the school to confirm the identity of the teacher. After his face matched with the person in the video, I suspended him,” district basic education officer Ajay Kumar said on Saturday, according to ANI.
Teachers, Kumar said, should never smoke and never in inside classrooms.
“Teachers have a huge impact on students. They shouldn’t smoke at all,” he added.
