SACRED Heart School in Kalyan is again in news, but for no good reasons. Ghanshyam Bhagwan Talreja, a father of a child had carried out a sting operation last week on corrupt school administrator Albin Anthony, now another father Abdul Anwar Shaikh had carried out a sting operation on Anthony who asked for extortion (bribe) in exchange for an admission.
Shaikh (40), a resident of Ulhasnagar-4 a businessman, approached ABI after reading Talreja’s news at ABI (abinet.org).
His son is studying in a Bangalore Board School in 1st standard. He wanted to shift the child to Ulhasnagar. Last week he approached Sacred Heart School located at Varap Gaon, Kalyan. School clerk B J Davis and administrator/director Albin Anthony told him that they will take admission in baby-sitting.
“My son is studying in 1st standard at Bangalore but Davis and Anthony told me that they will admit the child in baby-sitting,” said Shaikh.
Besides of Rs 62,000 fees Davis and Anthony also demanded Rs 1.5 lakh donation. The accused (Davis and Anthony) told that there are only two seats available. If he can manage Rs 1.5 lakh donation then they would start the admission procedure. Shaikh requested them to reduce the donation amount. The accused reduced only Rs 10,000. They also said that they wanted the donation amount in cash.
“I was in good mood so reduced Rs 10,000, or else I would reduce only Rs 5, 000,” said Anthony to Shaikh.
Fed up with their attitude, Shaikh decided to teach them a lesson. He recorded the entire conversation. (Copy (CD) available with ABI).
“I will file extortion FIR in police and also complaint in the education department,” said Shaikh.
