Here's why Calcutta HC sacked Bengal education minister's daughter and asked her to refund salary

Adhikari, along with his daughter, was booked for cheating and dishonesty, criminal conspiracy and corruption.

It was embarrassment for the West Bengal Education Minister Paresh Chandra Adhikari and his daughter when the Calcutta High Court ruled that she can’t keep her government teacher job and would have to return the salary she took from 2018.

The High Court dismissed Ankita Adhikari’s employment in a government-aided school and ruled that she deposit the salary paid to her since November 2018 in two instalments with the registrar.

The high court was hearing a petition filed by a candidate who claimed that she was deprived of the position despite having secured higher marks than Ankita in the recruitment examination.

The CBI is also probing the minister over his daughter's alleged illegal appointment and in fact he was grilled by the central agency in their Kolkata office on Friday.

Adhikari, along with his daughter, was booked for cheating and dishonesty, criminal conspiracy and corruption.
