New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday ordered a probe into two cases of forged Leave Travel Concession (LTC) bills by a principal and a former principal of two government schools.

According to a senior government official, one Lal Singh, who was a principal of Government Co-Education Senior Secondary School in Chawala area in 2012, allegedly made "forged LTC bills" which run into Rs 1,64,883.

"We have imposed a fine on him which will be deducted from his pension," a government official said in a statement.

It also stated that in second case, a principal of government school, situated in Badarpur, has also been accused of allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 3,000 from a tour operator for clearing LTC bills of his school teachers.
