It is submitted that the petitioners being sincere students appeared in all the papers on the scheduled dates of examination. It is stated that the copies of the petitioners have been changed at the behest of the manager of the committee of management who had accepted Rs. 1000/- per paper from some students. This act of the Manager was protested by the teachers of the Institution and they had also complained to the District Magistrate regarding illegal action of the Manager of the Committee of Management on 19.3.2005
The petitioners also have informed by means of application dated 6.4.2005to the Sachiv, Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad, U.P.

They also moved another application to the Secretary, Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad on 8.4.2005.
The District Magistrate, Sant Kabir Nagar vide order dated 18.4.2005 had directed the Joint Director of Education, Basti Region, Basti to enquire into the aforesaid matter.
The grievance of the petitioners is they have been given zero marks in Math IInd paper as their copies had been changed by the Manager with those who had not answered any question and had given Rs. 1000/- per paper to the Manager as ''Theka' amount. It is stated that inspite of the directions of the District Magistrate, the Joint Director of Education has not enquired into the matter.
The only relief sought by the counsel for the petitioners is that an enquiry which is pending against the respondent Principal may be brought to its logical conclusion within a time bound frame fixed by this Court.
The standing counsel states that Public Higher Secondary School, Anthry, Nighuri, Sant Kabir Nagar has been debarred as examination centre for a period of five years by the Assistant Secretary, Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad, U.P.

In the circumstances, the District Magistrate, Sant Kabir Nagar is directed to conclude the enquiry against the respondent-Principal in accordance with law within a period of three months from the date of submission of a certified copy of this order. In case he is found guilty, FIR be lodged against him and further action in accordance with law be taken. With the aforesaid direction, the petition is disposed of finally.
