Student suicide: Charge taken against Viqarunnisa teachers

Dhaka, April 30 – The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka on Tuesday accepted the charges brought against two teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College in a case filed for instigating the suicide of Aritry Adhikary, a ninth-grade student of the institution.
The accused teachers are Nazneen Ferdous, acting principal, and Zinat Akhtar, morning shift in-charge of the institution.
Metropolitan Sabbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order, scrutinizing the case dockets and other relevant papers.
However, the court relieved Aritry’s class teacher Hasna Hena of the charges as the Investigating Officer appealed to the court to discharge her from the charges.
Aritry was found hanging from the ceiling of her home in Shantinagar ara on December 3 last year, hours after she and her parents were allegedly insulted by some teachers of the school.
Inspector of Detective Branch of Police Kazi Kamrul Islam, Investigation Officer of the case, submitted the charge-sheet of the case against Nazneen Ferdous and Zinat Akhtar to the CMM Court on March 28 – Court Correspondent
