(2.) The appellant was the headmistress of an aided upper primary school run by the fourth respondent as its Manager. On 15/11/2011, the appellant was placed under suspension by the Manager in contemplation of disciplinary proceedings. On receipt of report from the Manager, having found that there was no valid ground for the suspension in the investigation conducted in terms of Rule 67(8) of Chapter XIVA of the Kerala Education Rules (KER), the concerned Educational Officer directed the Manager to reinstate the appellant. Though the order passed by the Educational Officer was challenged by the Manager in revision before the Government, the challenge was repelled. The appellant was consequently reinstated.
