LUCKNOW: Four days after real Anamika Shukla appeared and lodged an FIR against unidentified persons for misusing her documents to obtain jobs at
Balika Vidayalayas, she was
at a government-aided private school Bhaiya Chandrabhan Dutt Smarak Vidyalaya in Tarabganj in Gonda.
TOI had reported earlier that while at least 25 imposters used her name and educational qualification to get jobs at KGBVs, Anamika was jobless so far. While the nine FIRs have been lodged for this fraud, one of the masterminds and two ‘duplicate
’ have been arrested.
Anamika’s husband Durgesh Shukla on Saturday confirmed to TOI that she has got the appointment letter. “Anamika wanted to become a doctor but could not afford the coaching. The school had approached us for the job, and asked us to come on Monday for verification of the documents,” he said.
“We were worried after the whole episode of fraud in the name Anamika came to light in the media. We have a small piece of land which is just enough for subsistence,” he added. The couple has two kids — Adhya (2) and Anant (3).
“After seeing reports in the media about Anamika’s plight of poverty, and also considering her educational qualifications, the board of the school decided to employ her,” said the manager of
Bhaiyya Chandrabhan Dutt Smarak Vidyalaya
Pandey also said that three months ago, before the lockdown, Anamika had also applied for a job in the school.
“We will keep her on an ad hoc basis in the primary section because of the higher number of students enrolled in that section and she will be given the designation of assistant teacher,” Pandey told TOI.
He also said that Anamika will be reimbursed as per standards of the government.
