The students of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College who had been demonstrating following the suicide of a fellow on Thursday postponed their protest program as their demands have been met.
They will participate in the exam scheduled to be held on Friday (tomorrow), said Anushka Roy on behalf of the students.
“A meeting between teachers and students was held on the school compound from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm on Thursday,” said the student.
After the meeting, the students came out from the compound and informed reporters that they suspended their program.
Earlier, the students sent a letter to the Ministry of Education containing their demands.
Their demands are --- resignation of principal and ensure punishment of principal under section 305 and 306 for provoking suicide, give care to students depending on the behavior and characteristics of each student and considering their mental health, physical and mental torture will not be accepted in any condition.
Besides, stopping the threat of expulsion and illegal detention policy, appointing counselor to ensure mental health of the school students, parents, teachers and other staff, necessary counseling for students who will break discipline, resignation of governing body members and the principal and the school authority have to seek apology for misbehavior with Aritree’s parent.
Anushka Roy said their four demands have been met while two others are under the jurisdiction of the ministry.
Prior to this, governing body chairman Golam Ashraf Talukder apologized on behalf of the committee to Aritree’s family over the incident. He said, “We are shocked. We apologize to Aritree’s parents for this incident.”
Meanwhile, another faction of student demanded the release of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College class IX class teacher Hasna Hena, who has been sent to jail in a case filed in connection with Aritree’s suicide.
They claimed that their teacher Hasna Hena is innocent.
“We demand punishment of the culprit but the release of Hasna Hena,” the students chanted slogans in front of the gate No 1.
Nishat Sumaiya, a student of the school, said, “Our teacher Hasna Hena is completely innocent. We want her release.”
