Police have also registered cases against around a thousand protesting teachers and sent two of them to jail for their frequently causing disturbances in evaluation woks.

The teachers have been on strike for the past about a fortnight demanding equal pay for equal works. “While some teachers are being paid around Rs 40,000, we are being paid only around Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 for same works,” protesting teachers complain.

The crackdown on teachers was launched after the Bihar School Examination Board ordered for completing the evaluation works by April 30 at all costs and asked all district magistrates to provide security to the teachers willing to join evaluation works.
