New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday tweeted about a surprise inspection of a government-run school in the Bhati Mines area of south Delhi.
Sisodia then went on to re-tweet another post that claimed the students in the school were addicted to drugs. This message was originally shared by his personal assistant on microblogging site Twitter.
“Conducted a sudden inspection at a school in Bhati Mines area,” the minister tweeted.
His personal assistant, Amar Deep Tiwari’s tweet said: “Deputy CM got a complaint that a few students of the school consume drugs. Vice-principal of the school also accepted this.”
Sisodia inspected the school after reportedly getting a complaint that a few students at the school consume marijuana.
The police, however, said that they had no such information about a drug problem at the school.
“We have arrested a man today who was carrying 50 grams of marijuana, but there was nothing that indicated a link with the school or its students,” a police officer told IANS on Thursday.
