A government school teacher in Uttar Pradesh reportedly has been suspended for playing the mobile game Candy Crush on his phone during duty hours, according to a report by IANS.

The incident came to light when District Magistrate Rajendra Pansiya went to the school for a random visit, and found scores of mistakes in students' copies starting from the first page to the last.

Later, a feature on the teacher's phone, which tracked hours dedicated to applications, revealed that he spent nearly two hours playing Candy Crush during school hours.

"Teachers should focus on checking the classwork and homework of students, and ensure that they get quality education. Also, using mobile phones is not a problem, but using them for personal reasons during school hours is not right," the District Magistrate said.

Pansiya checked six pages of six students' copies, and spotted 95 mistakes, with nine being on the first page itself, IANS added.

He expressed displeasure about this and checked assistant teacher Priyam Goyal's phone.

The Digital Wellbeing feature on the teacher's phone then revealed that of the five-and-half hours of school hours, Priyam Goyal spent nearly two hours playing Candy Crush, talked on the phone for 26 minutes, and used social media apps for almost 30 minutes.

The District Magistrate apprised the state education department of the matter, who took cognisance of the same and suspended the assistant teacher.
