Viqarunnisa Noon School and College authorities on Saturday postponed the admission procedure of students for Class I. The procedure was scheduled to be started from tomorrow (Sunday) and continue until Tuesday.
The educational institute’s governing body chairman Golam Ashraf Talukder confirmed the matter.
‘We have postponed the admission as the documents like forms are in the lockers of the previous principal, whose whereabouts is now unknown,’ he said.
Talukder also said that they would later inform that on which date the admission of Class I students would start.
Earlier, a section of students of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College announced programme to boycott classes of Class XI from Sunday demanding release of their teacher Hasna Hena and fair probe.
A Dhaka court on Thursday sent Hasna Hena to jail after detectives in a drive arrested her from the city’s Uttara area in a case filed over suicide of student Aritree Adhikari.
Aritree, a Class-IX student, reportedly committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday after allegedly being rebuked by teachers for using mobile phone during examination.
Following the incident, the victim’s father Dilip Adhikari filed a case against three teachers of the school.
It sparked a wave of outrage inside and outside the school and students demonstrated at the campus for three days demanding justice over the incident.
Later on Wednesday, the governing body of the school suspended its three teachers—acting principal Nazneen Ferdous, morning shift in-charge of Bailey Road branch Jeenat Akhter and Aritree’s class teacher Hasna Hena—over the suicide case.
