satisfactory showing excellent result. She and other teachers made a

representation to the Directorate of Education-respondent No.2 to pay

her salary by cheque. It was her case that due to this the management of

the petitioner school became vindictive and they entangled her in various

criminal cases and started issuing various memos to her. The petitioners

dispatched a letter on December 23, 1996 by antedating the same to

December 02, 1996 alleging that the petitioner school had surrendered

her post. Neither any charge-sheet was served nor any opportunity was

granted to her before surrendering her post which had the effect of her

termination from the services of the petitioner No.1 School. She had also

stated that she was not allowed to enter the school. It was her case that

the respondent Nos.2 & 3 had failed to take any action against the

petitioners although many irregularities were pointed out.
