Allow tortured student Nadim to attend classes, HC tells Udayan school

The principal will submit a report in 30 days from the receipt of the court order.
 
The vacation bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice Md Selim issued an order and a suo moto rule to this effect on Wednesday following a newspaper report on the alleged torture.
 
The court also asked the principal to ensure that the student, Jamiul Islam Nadim of the institution’s Kakatua Section, can attend classes without any obstruction.
 
The order came after two lawyers Ruhul Kuddus Kajal and Abu Khaled Al-Mamun had drawn court attention to a report published in a daily on Tuesday on the torture.
 
Kajal said the bench in the rule asked why it would not order the respondents to take action against the teacher following investigation.
 
The education secretary, Directorate of Secondary Education and Higher Education director general, Dhaka education board chairman, Dhaka deputy commissioner, Udayan principal and the governing body will answer the court in four weeks.
 
Kajal told bdnews24.com that the institution was not allowing Nadim to attend classes.
 
According to newspaper report, teacher Jaoshed Alam called Nadim out of the classroom and thrashed him on Apr 13.
