A teacher from Khowai district committed suicide on January 9.

The teacher identified as Rini Debbarma was a gold medallist from Tripura University and taught at Ampura Higher Secondary school.

The then Left front government had recruited 10,323 teachers from 2010 to 2014, but because of a faulty recruitment policy, the Apex Court announced its verdict in 2016 and the appointments were scrapped on March 31, 2020.
