The Vigilance special court in Thiruvananthapuram has ordered an investigation into alleged malpractice at Parassala Koothali Eeshwara Vilasam Upper Primary School, following a complaint filed by social worker Sunil Kumar. The court’s directive came after accusations surfaced that the school officials had manipulated attendance records to inflate student numbers, thereby securing unwarranted government grants and allowances.

According to Kumar, an inspection by the super check officer from the general education department revealed 68 fake admissions during the 2023-24 academic year. This discovery prompted Kumar to file a complaint, which detailed the misuse of funds meant for noon meals, book allowances, and maintenance expenses.

Despite reports from the education department’s internal vigilance wing and the deputy director highlighting financial discrepancies amounting to Rs 14,765 for book allowances and Rs 50,980 for meal allowances in 2023-24, no action had been taken against the accused.

Judge Rajakumara M V’s order directs the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau to conduct a thorough investigation and submit a report within three months. The case underscores the importance of transparency and accountability in educational institutions, ensuring that public funds are used for their intended purposes and not misappropriated.
