District Magistrate, Mau, Gyan Prakash Tripathi confirmed the school manager had been arrested and sent to jail.

In the two-minute-long video, Praveen Mall, manager of Harivansh Memorial Inter College, is seen advising students to cheat and not leave any question unanswered even if they do not know the answer.

Mall is also heard saying: “Do not leave any question, no one sees what is written, leave a 100 rupee note in the answer sheet, the teacher will give you marks with eyes closed.”

 

He is also seen telling students to maintain discipline while copying and in case they are caught with a chit and slapped by the flying squad member, they must seek pardon by requesting to get slapped again.

“All of you should maintain discipline. If a chit is found and even if you are slapped, fold your hand and be ready for one more (slap). Don’t argue and stand straight as the teacher can damage your future,” Mall is heard saying in the video.

SHO, Madhuban police station, Rajiv Kumar Dubey, said, “A case has been registered against the school manager under section 66D of IT Act besides section 10 of Uttar Pradesh Public Examinations (Prevention of Unfair Means) Act, 1998.

Nagendra Kumar, brother of the school manager, said the police lodged FIR after the video of his brother addressing students on first day of the exam on February 18, recorded by a school staff, went viral.
