A Dhaka court has turned down the bail petition of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College teacher Hasna Hena, who is one of three accused of instigating the suicide of student Aritry Adhikary.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sayeed rejected the bail petition and ordered that the teacher be taken to jail after a hearing on Thursday. 

Detective Branch Inspector Kamrul Hasan Talukder had requested that the teacher be kept in jail, while Hasna Hena’s lawyer Jahangir Alam Chowdhury told the court his client did not play a role in the student’s suicide.

Ninth-grader Aritry committed suicide on Monday, hours after the school’s teachers allegedly humiliated the girl and her parents. Her father Dilip Adhikary accused Hasna, acting principal Nazneen Ferdous, and morning shift in-charge Zinnat Akhtar of instigating the suicide in a case filed with Paltan police on Tuesday.

The Education Ministry has also asked police and Rapid Action Battalion to take legal action against the teachers.

Hasna was arrested by the Detective Branch (DB) of police in Dhaka’s Uttara on Wednesday night.

Viqarunnisa authorities sacked the three teachers following government orders that came after two days of protests over Aritry’s death.

Two investigation committees, one by the government and another by the school authorities, were also formed on Tuesday.
