A group of deprived teachers staged a protest on Monday and sought protection from assaults. They asked West Tripura police superintendent J Reddy for protection. The deprived teachers alleged attacks since the Assembly by-poll results were announced last month.
Speaking to reporters, the leader of Amra 10323 Dalia Das said they had sought the police to identify those responsible for the alleged attacks and take appropriate legal action against them.
‘Some of our teachers faced attack from miscreants since the announcement of the by-poll results on June 26. We are barely surviving without a job as it is. Why are we being subjected to attacks? We have demanded the SP ensure our safety and security for us. He has given us positive assurance,’ said Das.

The delegation that met Reddy also said that though they were assured of reappointment, nothing has been done so far. ‘We were assured by our former chief minister but nothing was done, so our new chief minister will look into the issue positively,’ said another teacher.
According to the distressed teachers, a majority of the alleged attacks occurred in Ramnagar, Gangail, Arundhuti Nagar, and Surjapara areas of the West Tripura district.
