Education board secretary suspended

DEHRA DUN JUNE 26. The Uttaranchal Government today suspended Chandra Singh Gwal, Secretary of Uttaranchal Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad, as the results of the High School and Intermediate examinations were leaked and published in a regional newspaper even before they could be announced by the State Education Minister, Narender Singh Bhandari.

``The Education Secretary has been asked to identify all those officials who were responsible for making the results. They would be suspended soon and a thorough enquiry would be held into the episode,'' Mr Bhandari said while expressing surprise at the result CD being leaked despite a specific policy that the results would be announced by the Minister.
