TINSUKIA: The Tinsukia District Administration ordered a magisterial inquiry into the bizarre Friday the last incident when some agitating students forced a female teacher to tender an apology by kneeling before them.

According to reports, the students were staging dharna in front of Phillobari Senior Secondary School (erstwhile Phillobari Junior College) under Doomdooma Revenue Circle in the Tinsukia district. Later the students blocked the road against the alleged collection of Rs 3,000 for admission to HS classes. While the students were discussing with the Principal of the higher secondary school, a senior female teacher of the Assamese department, Niroda Borah, allegedly used an 'unpleasant' word against the students. That infuriated the students, and they demanded the teacher to tender an apology.

Besides the students of the schools, student leaders from several other organizations also joined the bandwagon.

The incident has sent ripples in society. The district administration ordered a magisterial inquiry into it on Friday. The student leaders apologized to the teacher.

Doomdooma Circle Officer Ranamoy Bhardwaj will conduct the inquiry in three days. Tinsukia Inspector of Schools Bitupan Hazarika will assist the circle officer in the probe.

Meanwhile, AASU expressed concern over the incident. The student body expelled its Tinsukia District Vice President Karna Buragohain for his involvement in the incident. The students' body made it clear that it would never tolerate insults of any sort to teachers by students.
