Now, five months later, a similar scam has emerged again in the state. The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) has traced four women, working as government teachers on the educational documents and identity of another teacher, Swati Tiwari.
Two ‘Swati Tiwaris’ were found to be working in Deoria while one each were found in Barabanki and Sitapur. The real Swati Tiwari is a government teacher in Gorakhpur. The officer said that after finding the details from the education department, STF nabbed the fake teacher, Hrishikesh Mani Tripathi, from Behta in Sitapur.

The officer said the STF traced the real Swati Tiwari in Gorakhpur where she was working as a government teacher. The fake teacher from Barabanki has been arrested while those in Deoria have been suspended. Snehlata of Sitapur is on the run.
