Teacher sent to jail after injuring student's eye in Chittagong
A Chittagong court has sent a school teacher to jail in a case filed for allegedly caning a class VIII student that left one of his eyes severely injured. Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Harunur Rashid sent Arif Billah to jail on Tuesday. Arif, an assistant teacher of mathematics at BEPZA Public School and College, caned 14-year-old Mashraful Al Kari for not doing his geometry assignment on August 5. The students started bleeding from his left eyes when Arif caned him. Later, Mashraful’s father lodged a case regarding the matter. EPZ police station Sub-Inspector Md Sayem told the Dhaka Tribune: “Arif was arrested on Monday. The court sent him to jail after we produced him before it on Tuesday.” He said the student has been sent to Dhaka for better treatment. School Principal Captain (Retd) MG Sabur told the Dhaka Tribune: “We have served a show cause notice to the teacher and suspended him. “A four-member probe committee has been formed to investigate the matter. We are waiting for the report.” Terming it an unintentional incident, he said necessary measures will be taken against the teacher if he is found guilty. The principal also said Arif visited the injured student at his house after the incident. In 2011, the High Court banned corporal punishment, including caning, beating and chaining of children, in schools and madrasas in Bangladesh.
