10th grade student of the local Ganabhaban Government High School has reportedly been beaten unconscious by a teacher for indiscipline in examination hall.

The student was identified as Mohammad Sabbir Hossain, 15.

One of the classmates of the victim, Emdadul Haque, told bdnews24.com that Sabbir lost consciousness when English teacher Rafiqul Islam punched him in face and head for acting naughty inside the examination hall on Saturday around 11am.

Headmistress of the school Fawzia Ahmed said, “The examination of Agriculture paper was being held in the morning. The students started making noise as they found no familiar questions in the paper. Later, I went to the hall and brought the situation under control.”

Saying that she was then unaware of Sabbir’s beating, the headmistress said, “No one had informed me of the incident until then. But students at the hospital told me that Mr Rafiqul Islam beat the boy.”

Sabbir was taken to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital first before being admitted to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital.

“Sabbir is now fine,” the headmistress added.

Officer-in-charge of Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station Ziauzzaman told bdnews24.com that teacher Rafiqul was brought to the police station for security reasons.
