A teacher of a non-provincialised school in Golakganj in Dhubri district of Assam committed suicide inside the school premises.
Headmaster of Dhepdhepi Girls’ High School, Prakitish Chandra Rai was found hanging at a classroom of the school.
Rai was working as a teacher in the school for the last 20 years without salary as the school was not provincialised till date.
Local people and family members have slammed Assam Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for not granting provincialisation to the school.
Rai had joined the school in 1997, sources said. He was very depressed as the school was not provincialised even after efforts by the teachers and staff of the school.
