Shahinur Rahman Shahin, a teacher of Ramnagar Government Primary School in Chatmohar upazila of the district, has been transferred to a school in a remote area as the primary inquiry found him guilty of caning a Class VI student of the school, official sources said.
Shahin caned the girl, Ranjina Khatun Rojoni, on Saturday for not wearing a new school uniform.
An inquiry committee, headed by an assistant primary education officer, was formed by the primary education officer of the upazila to investigate the matter.
“Shahin was found guilty of caning the girl, so he was withdrawn from the school,” Md Abul Bashar, Chatmohar upazila primary education officer, said, adding that the accused teacher stood released from the school and was transferred to a school in remote area.
“We have submitted the inquiry report to the higher authority, seeking departmental action against the accused teacher,” the education officer said.
