The principal (Bindapur school) has also installed the water cooler in his office for personal use, which was bought for students," Sisodia, who is also the education minister, said in tweets.

In the other case, a placement officer at GB Pant Polytechnic was suspended for taking bribe for job recommendations on fake certificates.
