West Bengal: TET Qualified Candidates Demonstrating Against Job Dispersed, Forcibly Pulled into Bus by Police. Watch Video

West Bengal: On Friday, West Bengal Board of Primary Education protesting applicants who had passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) were forcibly pulled into a bus. In a video, the protesters could be seen yelling as numerous Kolkata Police officers continued to cram them inside the bus.

Why are they protesting?

The demonstrators assert that they passed the 2014 TET examinations but were not included in the merit list. The protesters were dispersed by the police, who claimed that section 144 of the CrPC had been implemented in the area. The CrPC’s Section 144 forbids gatherings of four or more people in one place. Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code provides penalties for violating the order.

At midnight on Thursday, the protesters refused police requests to leave the area repeatedly, saying they wouldn’t go until they received appointment letters for teaching positions at state-run and state-aided primary schools.

Police dispersed the protestors

At about 12:35 in the morning, the police dispersed 500 demonstrators, according to news agency PTI. When the agitators refused to leave the area after numerous requests, the police said that they employed “minimal force.” However, the demonstrators claimed that several of them had been “physically mistreated” by police.

Since October 17, protesters have been holding indefinite sit-ins. Earlier, they stated that they would not leave the location until they were appointed, which prompted the deployment of more police officers, including women constables and the Rapid Action Force, in the region.

On Thursday, the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) 2014 candidates’ prolonged sit-in entered its fourth day. They insisted that they passed the test but that the hiring committee disregarded them. According to the PTI report, twenty protesters were on a hunger strike.

About 100 more people who identified themselves as TET 2017 candidates started a dharna a short distance away.
