The governing body of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College on Wednesday suspended its three teachers, including acting Principal Nazneen Ferdous and morning shift in-charge Jeenat Akhter, over the suicide of its student Aritree Adhikari.
The decision was taken at a special meeting of the governing held in the evening.
Earlier in the day, the Ministry of Education sent a letter to the police and Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) directing them to take legal action against the three teachers for their rude behavior with Aritree that prompted her to commit suicide.
The letter has been sent to the Director General of Rab and the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
The other teacher is class teacher Hasna Hena.
Meanwhile, the Education Ministry has sent another letter to the Dhaka Education Board Chairman for taking departmental actions, including their suspension, against the teachers.
Besides, another letter sent to the Director General of the Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Directorate asking it to take steps to suspend their salary and allowances.
The Education Ministry on Tuesday formed a three-member probe committee which found three teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College responsible for the suicide of AritreeAdhikari.
Aritree Adhikari, a Class-IX student, committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday after being rebuked by the teachers for using a mobile phone during the examination.
