05 Dec,2018

BDchronicle :

Education ministry has asked the governing body of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College to suspend its three teachers including acting principal Nazneen Ferdous over suicide of a class nine student.

 

The two other teachers are shift-in-charge of morning shift Jeenat Ara and class teacher Hasna Hena.

The ministry has also decided to cancel the teachers' MPOs, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said while addressing a press briefing at his secretariat office today.

 

Departmental action will be taken against all the three teachers, Nahid said. 

 

 

The death and the subsequent agitation, joined by parents, rocked the 66-year-old institute and prompted the education ministry and the school authorities to form two separate probe committees.

 

Besides, the High Court directed the education secretary to form another five-member committee headed by an additional secretary of the ministry to look into the matter.

 

WHAT HAPPENED TO ARITRY ADHIKARY?

 

Aritry Adhikary, a ninth grader, was found hanging from the ceiling of her home in the capital's Shantinagar on Monday (December 3) hours after she and her parents were allegedly insulted by some teachers of the school.

 

The death and the subsequent agitation, joined by parents, rocked the 66-year-old institute and prompted the education ministry and the school authorities to form two separate probe committees.

 

WHO HAVE BEEN MADE ACCUSED?

 

Around 8:00pm yesterday, Aritry's father Dilip filed a case with Paltan Police Station accusing Nazneen, Zinat and Aritry's class teacher Hasna Hena of provoking the suicide.

 

FAMILY SHATTERED

 

Holding the certificates of his daughter close to his chest, Dilip cried the entire time while talking to this correspondent.

 

"My daughter knew seven different languages and got an award from British Council  as best book reader,Ó he said, adding Aritry had secured GPA-5 in her  Primary Education Completion Examination and Junior School Certificate examinations in 2014 and 2017.

 

 

"I pleaded with them to give my daughter a second chance. Aritry even tried to hold the teachers' leg,Ó he said.
