    The minister is a Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) from Mekhliganj constituency in Cooch Behar.

    The petitioner’s lawyer Firdous Shamim claimed that Sarkar had secured 77 marks in the examination while the minister’s daughter got 61, and that her name did not figure in the merit list, but had been given appointment as a teacher depriving the her.

    Justice Gangopadhyay had earlier on four occasions ordered CBI inquiry in connection with alleged irregularities in appointments of teaching and non-teaching staff in state government-aided schools.
