Ashraful Islam Jitu, who thrashed his teacher Utpal Kumar Sarkar with a cricket stump causing his death, has been expelled from his school.

Saiful Islam, principal of Haji Yunus Ali School and College in Ashulia, confirmed the matter on Friday.

He demanded that Jitu be given the maximum penalty for the murder of Utpal, who taught political science at the institute and was a member of its disciplinary committee.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Jitu, a tenth-grader of the school, on Wednesday.

The next day, a Dhaka court granted the police five days to interrogate him in custody.

Jitu beat up Utpal on June 25, in order to impress a girl, according to RAB. Utpal had directed him to refrain from hanging out with the girl.

Utpal was taken to an area hospital and later to Enam Medical College and Hospital, where he eventually died while receiving treatment on June 27.
