A Dhaka court has granted bail for Viqarunnisa Noon School and College Teacher Hasna Hena in a case filed over the suicide of Aritry Adhikary, a class nine student of the school.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Baki Billah passed the order after hearing a bail petition here on Sunday.
The teacher was sent to jail on Thursday last after the members of police’s detective branch had arrested on Wednesday night for ‘instigating’ the ninth grader of suicide.
Earlier on Monday last, the VNS student had committed suicide as her school teachers had allegedly insulted her parents.
Aritry was caught cheating using mobile phone during an exam, claimed the teachers.
The death of the girl created a public upsurge across the country, especially on social media.
Later, the Ministry of Education launched an investigation into the incident and fired Hasna Hena, the school’s Acting Principal Nazneen Ferdous and the head of one of the branches of the school, Zinnat Akhtar. Their MPOs were also scrapped.
The Ministry of Education also recommended that police and RAB take legal action against them. That night police arrested Hasna Hena. Law enforcers have not moved to arrest the other two suspects in the case.
