Officials are keeping an eye on all major developments and efforts are on to retain peace in the area.

Last week, thousands of applicants who appeared for teachers’ examination took to streets, pelted stones, and torched vehicles on the NH8.

They demanded the filling up of over 1,000 vacant posts reserved for the general category be filled by ST candidates. The highway was blocked for about 10 kilometres since Thursday evening. Many police vehicles were torched and several policemen were injured in the violence.
