The District Officer Education recovered Punjab Textbook Board books from a scrap shop and ordered an inquiry into the incident here the other day.

According to details, the DO education was informed that that Rakh Machike Government Girls High School Headmistress Shahnaz Bibi had allegedly been involved in the sale of the PTB book meant for free distribution among deserving students of the government schools.

However, due to apathy and vested interest of some officials, a large quantity of these books has been sold out to the scrap shop. On the other hand, the Punjab education Secretary took notice of the incident and sought a complete report regarding the incident from the officials of the District education department. When contacted, the school headmistress denied selling out new textbooks, saying that her school peon had only sold out old syllabus and torn books.
