Judicial probe begins into N`ganj teacher humiliation
A judicial committee has started investigation over the harassment of Narayanganj school teacher Shyamal Kanti Bhakta.
A three member probe committee visited the spot around 12:00pm on Monday.
Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sheikh Hafizur Rahman led the probe committee.
The two other committee members are- Metropolitan Magistrate Golam Nabi and Mazharul Islam.
Piar Sattar Latif High School teacher Shyamal was assaulted by a mob on the school premises on May 13 on allegation that he had committed blasphemy against Islam.
Local Jatiya Party MP AKM Salim Osman apparently made Shyamal do squats holding his ears. A video footage of the incident went viral on the social media, triggering massive outcry across Bangladesh.
Salim claimed what he did was to save Shyamal from the mob.
However, in a report filed on Thursday, police gave a clean chit to Salim saying he was not involved in the incident.
The High Court in its order said the police report is incomplete. The investigation officer has failed to do his job. Besides, the Narayanganj court that recorded the report before forwarding it to the High Court did not apply judicial mind.
