Teacher with exam answer sheets flees


POLICE in Eastern Highlands are looking for a teacher accused of being in possession of Grade 10 national examination answer sheets.
Provincial police commander Superintendent Alex N’Drasal said the teacher’s accomplice was in police custody.
The teacher from Lufa Secondary School was caught with the answer sheets on Wednesday night but managed to run away.
“His co-accused has been caught by the police and now detained in the Goroka police station cells,” he said.
N’Drasal said the two men went to the school at about 7.30pm to sell the answers sheets to boarding students.
“However, the principal became suspicious of the movement of the hired vehicle at the school at night when the Grade 10 and 12 students were preparing for their exams,” he said.
“He called officers from the Lufa police station to check the vehicle. When they went to the vehicle, the teacher got out and escaped into the darkness leaving his co-accused in the vehicle.
“His co-accused is not from the district so was unfamiliar with the environment and the locals. Thus, he cannot escape. The locals punctured the vehicle’s tyres.”
