A senior secondary school in Phillobari, Tinsukia district in Assam, has become the topic of discussion since October 16 after the video of a female teacher bowing down and apologising to students went viral on social media.
The incident took place while students, backed by few organisations were protesting against the hike in their admission fee.
The protest was against the collection of Rs 3,000 from each of the institute’s students.
The situation turned grim after the teacher said something that did not go down well for the protesters. Although the incident took place on October 11, it garnered attention only after the video surfaced on social media.
The largest student body of the state, the All Assam Students’ Union also had to face massive criticism on social media after reports of a member of the association being involved in the incident has surfaced.
However, the organisation has informed that it has suspended the member. Sharing a video on social media, AASU General Secretary Sankar Jyoti Baruah says, “We have suspended the member involved in the incident.”
Later, some of the students who took part in the protest also visited the teacher’s residence and apologised for the incident.
Meanwhile, the district administration has set up a special committee to investigate the matter and submit its report within three days.
