HYDERABAD: A government school teacher in Sircilla district of Telangana faced the axe after a video of him performing surgery in a private hospital went viral on social media with a post ‘government teacher donned the role of a surgeon.’

The teacher, Racharla Venkat alias Venkanna, was suspended by the District Education Officer D Radhakishan on the direction of district collector D Krishna Bhasker.

According to Sircilla District Education Officer D Radhakishan, Racharla Venkat alias Venkanna, is a Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP)-turned-government teacher. He works as an English language school assistant teacher at ZP High School in Yellareddypet but during vacations, he used to don the role of an RMP and treat patients.

When the education department officials came to know about this, they warned him to mend his ways. However, ignoring the warning, Venkanna performed an abdomen surgery in a private hospital in Mustabad.
