VIRUDHUNAGAR: Collector K. Raghupathy has suspended a makkal nala paniyalar and Kariyapatti Panchayat Union Commissioner (village panchayat) on Tuesday.

During an inspection he found that the attendance register at Kariyanendal panchayat was not filled up even at 11.30 a.m.

He immediately asked to suspend the makkal nala paniylar for dereliction of duty and instructed the officials to initiate disciplinary proceedings against two other employees.

Later, he found that the Panchayat union Commissioner had absented himself from duty without informing his superiors and ordered to place him under suspension.

Mr. Raghupathy instructed the Education Department official to take action against a teacher of an elementary school at Villipathiri village for “falsely” marking attendance register of students.

The Collector also ordered action against the noon meal organiser of the school for irregularities in serving eggs to students, a statement said.
