The case, filed against three teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, including its principal, over the suicide of schoolgirl Aritree Adhikari, has been transferred to Detective Branch of Police.

Md Mahabub Alam, joint commissioner (DB), said that the case was transferred to DB police from Paltan Police Station on Wednesday for the thorough investigation.

Victim's father Dilip Adhikari filed the case with Paltan Police Station on Tuesday night accusing Principal Naznin Ferdous, morning shift in-charge Jinat Akhtar and class teacher Hasna Hena of provoking Aritee to commit suicide.

Aritree Adhikari, a class-IX student, committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday after allegedly being rebuked by teachers for using a mobile phone during the examination.

The incident sparked widespread protests among the students and their guardians who also demanded the removal of the accused teachers.
