Lucknow: An FIR has been lodged against
15 people in connection with protest by Moallim-e-Urdu degree
holders, who climbed atop an overhead water tank and
threatened to commit suicide.
While an FIR has been lodged against six, who climbed
on the tank, a case has been lodged against nine
office-bearers of the Association on charges of inciting,
police said here today.
Six Moallim-e-Urdu degree holders, including three
women, yesterday climbed atop the water tank demanding the UP
government to recognise their degree equivalent to Basic
Training Certificate, police said.
The police later used force to bring down the protesters,
who refused to budge, despite assurance by senior officials to
look into their demands.
