Agartala, September 15, 2010: A teacher went into berserk and cruelly thrashed several high class students at a school in South Tripura. The weird and sensational incident occurred at Guachand Higher Second students at Sabroom, 143km south of Agartala, Tuesday.  

The depressing side of the occurrence was that teacher Jagadish Das did not spare girls in his outburst over a simple matter of indiscipline. Reports said Das was distributing result sheets of school monthly examination of Class XI which actually triggered the ugly episode.  

Student Rekha Debnath expressed sadness for not getting desired marks and told teacher about this. The retort enraged teacher Das who then started slapping Rekha till she fell down unconscious.  

Her fellow students protested to the unruly behaviour of the teacher who instead of relenting took on them. Jagadish Das roughed up all students present in the classroom causing injuries to several.  

Some of the injured have been named as Sujata Chakraborty, Jaya Debnath, Gauri Das, Maman Debnath, Rakesh Debnath, Jhutan Debnath and Rekha Debnath. The school authority has issued a show cause notice to the erring teacher while parents of the students demanded stern action against Jagadish Das.  

In another incident of disorderly manner at Jalefa Higher secondary school in Sabroom a teacher was injured in an attack by two fellow staffs for a protest against smoking in school premises. Bikash Baidya has loged a complaint with the education department against fellow teachers Chitan Lal Dey and Jayanta Roy who beat him up mercilessly for urging them not to smoke inside school.
