Bhubaneswar:The agitation by teachers under the aegis of All Odisha School College Teachers’ and Employees’ United Forum took a violent turn following a scuffle with police in front of Capital High School here on Tuesday.

 

Tension ran high after senior officials of Commissionerate Police tried to forcibly evict the agitating teachers who were staging a demonstration in front of the school, an evaluation centre for matriculation examination.

Several teachers have been detained by police in connection with the incident.

 

Earlier in the day, the agitating teachers reached the school and staged demonstration to press for fulfilment of their eight-point charter of demands.
