The CBI on Wednesday submitted a report to the Calcutta High Court naming 952 teachers it identified as having been illegally appointed in state-run schools.

The West Bengal School Service Commission (SSC) spotted 183 such teachers recruited for Class IX and X posts, who are also part of the central agency’s list.

Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay expressed shock at the report and said he would take up the matter for hearing on Thursday and pass an appropriate order.

The judge had ordered a CBI investigation in 10 cases after the agency submitted earlier that it had seized blank OMR sheets of candidates in Ghaziabad. Justice Gangopadhyay had also asked the SSC to supply a list of aspirants to whom appointments had been given.

In a related development, CBI questioned 50 illegally appointed teachers from Howrah’s Amta and Bagnan schools at Nizam Palace. Investigators wanted to know how these teachers jumped ranks, and questioned them on who recommended them for jobs and whether they had to shell out money.

The teachers were told to go into detail about the recruitment process and asked whether they got calls from any individual from the SSC informing them of their appointments.

Days ago, the CBI had questioned authorities of private teacher training colleges across the state to find out how many from these institutes secured posts. Investigators had also asked them about the “offline” registration process.
