NH-100 blockade: 4 teachers arrested, FIRs filed against 29 | Ranchi News | #teacher | #children | #kids

Hazaribag: Police on Saturday said filed FIRs against 29 people and arrested four teachers of different coaching centres for allegedly instigating hundreds of students to stage several hours-long demonstrations at Korrah Chowk and Hazaribag zila parishad chowk on Friday and demand the reopening of the institutes in the city.
SDPO (Hazaribag sadar) Vidya Bhushan Kumar said the FIRs were lodged under sections 188 and 234 of the Disaster Management Act and different sections of the IPC at the Hazaribag sadar and Korrah police stations. Among the arrested teachers, two have been identified as Rajesh Prasad and Mahesh Mandal.
Kumar further said police had used drones and cameras to identify the men who allegedly instigated the students on Friday.
The students were protesting against the government’s April 6 order to shut all educational institutes until further orders at the behest of the teachers and other people. They raised slogans like “Padhne do ya marne do”.
Following the protests, several vehicles and commuters along the NH-100 which connects Hazaribag with Dhanbad, Giridih, Bishnugarh, Bagodar and Bokaro were stranded
According to the protesters, the government should relax its order since prolonged closure of the coaching institutes will affect their preparations for the board and competitive examinations and harm their prospects.
The SDPO, however, said it was too dangerous to reopen the institutes given the surge in Covid cases in the district. He said, “Under no circumstances can the coaching centers be allowed to reopen when the prohibitory orders are in effect across the district till April 30.”
