A Dhaka court has issued warrant to arrest two teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College (VNSC) in the case lodged for allegedly instigating one of their students, Aritry Adhikary, to commit suicide.

Dhaka 3rd Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge Robiul Alam passed the order on Sunday, cancelling their bail in the case, reports BSS.

Sunday was fixed for recording deposition of the witness, and the accused needed to be present at the court for this. But the accused teachers, Nazneen Ferdous and Zinat Akhtar, failed to appear before it, making the court to cancel their bail and issue arrest warrant.

The same court, on July 10, 2019, framed charges against the two teachers.

Earlier on April 30, 2019, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury accepted the charge sheet filed in the case.

The court also allowed the investigation officer’s plea to drop the name of Aritry’s class teacher Hasna Hena from the case as allegations brought against her were not found true in the probe.

Police on March 28, 2019, filed the charge sheet against the then principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College Nazneen Ferdous and morning shift in-charge of the school’s Bailey Road branch Zinat Akhtar.

Investigation officer Inspector Kazi Kamrul Islam of the Detective Branch of police submitted the charge sheet.

Aritry was found hanging from a ceiling fan of her house in capital’s Shantinagar area on December 3, 2018, hours after she and her parents were reportedly insulted by the teachers as she was caught using a mobile phone during an exam.

She was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors declared her dead. She was 15 at the time of her death.

The next day, Aritry’s father Dilip Adhikary filed a case with Paltan police station against the three teachers.

On the same day, around 100 students and their guardians were seen demonstrating outside the main campus of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, at Baily Road in Dhaka — protesting against the suicide of ninth grader Aritry.

The Education Ministry and the school authorities formed two separate probe committees following continuous agitation by the students. The High Court directed the education secretary to form another five-member committee, headed by an additional secretary of the ministry, to look into the matter.
