"Teachers dupe school for 23 years"
The entire staff at a school in eastern India has been sacked after it was found they'd not been to work for 23 years.
The 11 employees , including eight teachers, at the Rajendra Memorial High School in West Champaran played truant except to register their presence twice a year on occasions of national importance.
The matter only came to light after the Bihar School Examination Board Chairman Subhash Sharma carried out a snap inspection.
It was also discovered the names of most of the students enrolled in the school were fake.
