The National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI) gave a clean chit to St John's High School principal Kavita Das and an art teacher, who were held guilty by the UT Administration for promoting cyber crime and obscenity.
NCMEI held that the UT Administration had interfered with the internal administration of a minority educational institution despite protections that the Constitution guarantees.
The commission also asserted that UT's decision was in violation of the law governing the rights of minority educational institutions under Article 30 (1) of the Constitution.
Meeta Goyal and TK Goyal, parents of two school students, on November 3, 2009, had made a complaint to UT Home Secretary alleging that Dass had promoted cybercrime in the school by holding a competition to hack servers and logins of others and art teacher Michael Angelo had promoted obscenity.
The UT Home Secretary ordered an inquiry against the principal and the art teacher through Director Public Instructions, who held the two guilty and asked the school management to act against them. The school then approached NCMEI against the inquiry report.
St John's High School is a minority institution declared as such by the NCMEI under the NCMEI Act of 2005.
