In a belated response, security personnel removed protesters who had locked the director of education in her room for hours after an overnight vigil at the office complex. The director, an employee of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), is pregnant and was locked in her room from 10:30 am on Thursday.

The protesters, a section of 10,323 AD hoc teachers who lost their jobs in early 2021 after years of legal proceedings over serious shortcomings in their hiring demanded their reinstatement. In 2017, the Supreme Court upheld a 2014 Tripura Supreme Court order to terminate their services.

The failing teachers carry out daily protests in various forms to push through their demands for reinstatement or new hire. They rejected the state government’s assurances of “phased hiring” in various capacities in various departments.

A group of retired teachers locked up the director of education’s office shortly after their leaders were released from custody after a brief detention. The police personnel present were apparently reluctant to act, but hours later, it dispersed the protesters and rescued the director of education at the behest of their superiors.

The Tripura Commission for Women has taken note of the forced detention of the pregnant officer. A Commission official condemned the incident and said the incident would be investigated.
