Police are yet to take any action against Netrakona municipality councillor and panel mayor Sheikh Helal Uddin’s sixth-grader son Sheikh Urdho and his associates who were accused in a case filed four days ago for assaulting teachers and staffs of Dutt High School.
Urdho along with 15-20 of his associates allegedly intruded the school premises on Saturday afternoon and assaulted its teachers Mahbubur Rahman Polash, Rezaul Karim, senior office assistants Sharif Uddin Khan Pathan, Bedana Akhter and Mina Begum.
The school’s assistant head teacher Mujibur Rahman filed a case with Sadar police station in this connection on the same day.
Three of the injured took treatment at Netrakona Sadar Hospital.
Officer-in-Charge of Sadar police station Abu Taher Dewan said police were trying to arrest the accused in the case.
Injured teacher Mahbubur Rahman Polash alleged a group of stalkers took position at the gate of Dutt High School and started stalking the girls of Government High School located just opposite to it.
The teacher said he had gone to the school gate with a stick to resist the stalkers and hit Urdho twice with it around 12:30pm.
“I didn’t know Urdho is Sheikh Helal’s son. If I knew it, I wouldn’t have done anything to him,” said Mahbubur.
Sheikh Helal is said to be an Awami League backed councillor of the municipality.
Teachers and staffs of the school had decided to stage demonstrations protesting the incident, but later suspended the programmes following a request from State Minister Arif Khan Joy, who is also the MP of Netrakona-2 constituency.
Dutt High School’s Board of Directors President Habibur Rahman Khan Ratan said the State Minister had expressed his concern over the incident and sought time from the teachers’ community till March 31 to resolve the matter.
