MNA Exclusive Desk: A case was filed with Cox’s Bazar Sadar Model Police on Monday over alleged torture of the guardian of a kindergarten student by school authorities in Khorulia of Sadar upazila of Cox’s Bazar.
Ranjit Kumar Barua, officer-in-charge of Sadar Model Police Station, said Ayatullah, the guardian, filed a case on Monday night around 7:00pm accusing six named and 5 unnamed individuals.
The accused are Jahirul Haque, Headmaster of Khorulia High School, Md Obayet Hossain, an assistant teacher of the school, Borhan Uddin, Headmaster of the adjoining KG and Pre-cadet School, Nurul Hossain, a record-keeper of the school, and two locals, Abdul Aziz and Mizanur Rahman.
According to the case statement, Ayatullah claimed that the accused tied him up and tortured him on Sunday when he went to the school to enquire about an admission fee hike for the KG and Pre-cadet School where his son was enrolled.
In Jahirul’s version of events, Ayatullah also attacked him when he arrived on the scene and asked why he was exercising muscle-power. And that is when the enraged students and staff of the school came together to give Ayatullah ‘a good beating’.
A video of this segment has been doing the rounds on social media, that seems to confirm it was somewhat more than ‘a good beating’.
