Aritri’s suicide: Charges against 2 Viqarunnesa teachers
Live Correspondent: A Dhaka court on Wednesday framed charges against two teachers who allegedly instigated Aritri Adhikari, a student of class nine of the Viqarunnesa Noon School and College to commit suicide.
Dhaka Third Additional Metropolitan Judge Robiul Alam framed the charges against the duo exempting another class teacher of the school Hasna Hena in the case. Earlier on April 30, the court accepted the charge-sheet and a plea to exempt Hasna Hena from the allegation.
The student committed suicide on 3 December last year hanging with a ceiling fan. She was taken to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital in a critical condition where doctors declared her dead that triggered massive protest.
On the 4 December, a case was filed by Aritri’s father Dilip Adhikari alleging that the Principal of the school and college Najnin Ferdows, Chief of the morning shift Jinat Aktar and the class-teacher Hasna Hena instigated his daughter to commit suicide.
