Mangaluru : A school teacher of St Gerosa Educational Institution in the city has been dismissed on the charge of resorting to religious abuse while teaching in the classroom.

Another teacher will be appointed in her place. The district level officials are investigating this. We will cooperate to make this investigation transparent.
