AG office yet to receive probe report over Shyamal Kanti humiliation,  asks cops to submit report thru affidavit

The attorney general office also asked the district police to submit the report through affidavit by tomorrow, said Deputy Attorney General Motaher Hossain.

On Thursday, police submitted a report over harassment incident of Shyamal Kanti Bhakta, a teacher of Piar Sattar Latif High School in Narayanganj, stating that local lawmaker AKM Salim Osman was not involved in the incident.

Deputy Attorney General Motahar Hossain said this while talking to journalists on the day.

On May 13, Shyamal Kanti was assaulted on the school premises by a mob claiming that he had committed blasphemy against Islam. Later, he was also made to do squats holding his ears in presence of local Jatiya Party lawmaker AKM Salim Osman.

The teacher later told media that he had been made a victim of conspiracy by some teachers and members of the managing committee. Then, a general diary was filed with Bandar police station.

After the humiliation incident which created massive outrage across the country, Kanti was undergoing treatment for several days at a hospital in Naraynganj and Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Seeking apology, Salim Osman also told journalists that he was compelled to make Shyamal Kanti to do squats holding his ears in order to save the teacher from a mob.

On May 17, the school's managing committee sacked the teacher with effect from May 13 showing four reasons, including allegations of physically assaulting students and making disparaging statements against Islam.

Later, Education Ministry dismissed the school’s managing body and reinstated Shyamal Kanti based on the findings of the probe report.

On May 18, a High Court bench issued a suo-moto rule asking why legal proceedings should not be taken against those, including the MP.

The court also ordered Narayanganj district administration to submit a report on what lawful measures had been taken after the incident.

Shyamal Kanti Bhakta returned to his workplace on July 11three months after he was sacked by the school’s management committee and was later reinstated by the Ministry of Education.
