DERGAON, May 20 - An educated youth, Krishnakanta Dutta (30), created a ruckus at Garanga Tiniali, 13 km off Golaghat town on Sunday, having got no job till date even after having cleared the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) seven years ago.
The youth was beaten up by the people after he reportedly attacked several persons and damaged vehicles parked on the road without any cause at Garanga Tiniali. Padmeswar Saud, the officer-in-charge (OC) of Ghiladhari police station (PS) rescued the youth immediately after receiving the information.
The OC after retrieving the mobile number of the father of the youth from a missed call in his phone, called up his father, Minaram Dutta, of Narasingha Gaon in Majuli under Jengraimukh PS.
�At the time we rescued the youth, he had no cloth on his body as his it was completely torn out�, Saud said.
�We gave him a new dress and then came to know that he was an educated youth and had lost his mental balance facing an uncertain future�, the OC added.
Police handed over the youth to his father. Krishnakanta is now undergoing treatment at Jorhat Medical College Hospital.
Interacting with media persons, Minaram said that his son had gone to Guwahati in a good condition to inquire about his appointment as he had cleared the TET conducted by the Assam government way back in 2012.
�He passed master degree from Dibrugarh University and has also cleared the TET. But no appointment was received by him for seven long years. So, he lost his mental balance having no hope of appointment,� his father said.
The Assam government is considering applying for extension of the validity of TET certificate which had expired in March, 2019.
The incident has once again underscored the uncertainty of educated youths in the job market.
