Presenting a report on the incident, Biren stated students came out on the streets and staged protest demonstration yesterday against transfer and promotion of teachers of 16 Higher Secondary Schools .

Some students too suffered injuries .
Police fired some tear gas shells in their efforts to control the situation .
Even if they have grievances against the transfer of teachers, the students should have sought an opportunity to talk with the Government rather than raising an uproar and pelting stones, said the Chief Minister .
As the police officer sustained grievous injuries on the head, Imphal East Police have taken up a criminal case after registering an FIR, Biren stated .
Raising a point of order, MLA Kh Joykisan asked the Speaker what had happened to the call attention motion he raised about the incident .

He further lamented that the Opposition Members were not given any opportunity for debate either during question hour or zero hour.
