Textbooks in firewood shed:

Ministry to conduct own investigation

The Education Ministry in addition to police investigations, has launched its own investigations into the alleged misconduct of a distributor of school textbooks, Education Publications Commissioner, W.M.N.J. Pushpa Kumara told the Daily News.

He said a large quantity of school textbooks meant for distribution among students next year have been found by police neatly concealed in a fire-wood shed near a house in Kerawalapitiya, Wattala.

The police had raided the place following a tip-off and a suspect has been taken into custody along with the textbooks.

Pushpa Kumara said the Education Ministry has employed outside transporters to transport school textbooks.

“Probably this may be the result of a misconduct on the part of one of the transporters. The details will be revealed by the investigations which are now being conducted,” Pushpa Kumara said.

Considering the issue as a matter concerning the future of the younger generation, tough action would be taken against persons found guilty of such malpractice, Education Ministry spokesman said.
