5 Anganwadi teachers in Chennur arrested for reselling ICDS products meant for children

Hyderabad: Five Anganawadi teachers were arrested by the Mancherial police in Chennur, Mancherial district, for illegal selling of ICDS products. The teachers, with the help of sub-contractors, were reselling milk and eggs allotted to an Anganwadi centre to bakeries, restaurants, and sweet shops.

Due to COVID-19, not many children are coming to Anganawadis. In cases students are unable to come to the centres, the Anganwadi teachers are supposed to go to their homes and give them eggs and milk. "In this case, the teachers gave the children only half of what they were entitled to and sold the rest to the contractor who in turn sold it to shops," said Akhil Mahajan, the assistant commissioner of police, Mancherial district.

A case has been registered against the Anganwadi teachers. The Mancherial police are also conducting a detailed investigation to identify similar cases in the area.
