A primary school teacher in north-central Assam's Sonitpur district has allegedly used a noose on Class 4 students to explain how freedom fighters were hanged to death during the British rule.

The district administration has ordered a probe into his 'dangerous' practical approach. “District elementary education officer Ashim Chetia has been asked to probe the incident. Action will be taken on the basis of the report he submits,” Lalit Gogoi, deputy commissioner of Sonipur, said.

Dhiren Kakati, a teacher at Konkalbhangi Prathamik Vidyalaya, on Saturday tied a noose around the necks of Class 4 students to show how freedom fighters were hanged. The school is 170km northeast of Guwahati.

Scared, the students abandoned class and ran home. Their parents approached the school management and sought an explanation.

The teacher, local residents said, justified using the noose for “imparting practical knowledge” about a significant chapter of Indian history. He said his intention was not to hurt any of the children.
