The retrenched 10,323 teachers organized under the banner of Joint Movement Committee (JMC) have today filed cases in state human rights commission as well as in the high court on issues related to their forced ouster from the sit-in stir in front of the City Centre at Paradise Chaumuhuni on 27th January. Speaking to JMC leader Bijay Krishna Saha said that the case with the state human rights commission has been filed against gross human rights violation committed by police on peaceful and democratic agitators on the morning of 27th February when even women agitators had been physically assaulted with their children. 

"Apart from this, we have filed a case in high court seeking permission for holding peaceful sit-in yet again to press for our jobs; we earlier applied to the administration for permission to restart our sit-in as part of our agitation for jobs but the administration has denied us permission ; the case has been put up today and it is expected to  come up for initial hearing for admission" said Bijay Krishna Saha. He added that another case will be filed on Monday next in high court praying for initiation of proceedings against state police that illegally drove us away from sit-in strike using physical assault on 27th January in spite of the fact that the police action had been initiated even before the notification regarding the imposition of prohibitory order under section 144 had been notified.

"We are also in process of consultation over filing new case in high court over our illegal termination ; the original judgment of chief justice Deepak Kumar Gupta and Swapan Chandra Das had terminated the services of 461 teachers or even fewer and no subsequent order of supreme court ever said that all 10,323 teachers should be terminated en masse; moreover, we have not received a formal termination order showing grounds etc; we will appeal the high court of Tripura for a hearing of our plea in the matter subsequently after filing of the case against police on Monday" said Bijay Krishna.
