3 Injured in Lathi-Charge Before Mizoram CM's office

Aizawl, Jun 21 : Three persons, including one policeman were injured today when the cops lathi-charged people for "unlawful assembly" in front of the office of Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla here.

A large number of people gathered in front of the chief minister's office and sought an appointment with him demanding to know why the proposed recruitment for replacing teachers who left service on Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) was postponed and when the examination would be held, police said.

The protesters were leaders and members of Pre-Service Trained Teachers Association and obstructed chief minister from going out from his office premises, leading the police personnel to lathi-charge them.

In the melee, two civilians and one police official sustained injuries, they added.
