Primary School Teacher Fatima Bibi posted at Government Girls School Bar Asoi Kohistan was terminated on the basis of long absence and the same teacher was re-instated by the directorate few months ago. She was required to join the duty within stipulated time but failed to do so, resultantly she remained terminated under the rules.

However, Rs1.64 million was illegally drawn on the name of salaries of Fatima Bibi in April 2020 by the office through concerned District Accounts Officer. How a teacher can claim such a huge amount without performing her duty, the letter said. He identified that there were another four absentee teachers whose salaries were still being deposited in the accounts. ASDEO said that he wrote a letter for an investigation into the matter but received no response.
