According to the IANS report, the teacher has lost his job due to his addiction to the mobile game Candy Crush. The teacher has been suspended for playing and talking on the phone during duty.

According to the report, this incident came to light when the District Magistrate Rajendra Pansia reached the school for a surprise inspection and found that there were many mistakes in the students’ copies from the first page to the last page. When the teacher’s phone was checked, an app in it revealed the whole secret.

Actually, that app tracks the hours spent on the phone. It was revealed that the school teacher spends about 2 hours playing Candy Crush during school time. The DM told local journalists that teachers should focus on checking the school work and homework of the students. They should ensure that children get quality education.
