Compounder Dulal Mia of Barisal Sarkari Shishu Paribar – Girls (North), who severely beat up two minor inmates, has been suspended.
The suspension order came after a three-minute video clip went viral on the social media on Monday night.
Deputy Commissioner Dr Gazi Saifuzzaman visited the spot on Tuesday after the video footage surfaced on the internet and took the decision against the government staff.
Meanwhile, Social Welfare Ministry has formed a five-member committee, headed by the Additional DC (general), to investigate the incident.
The committee has been asked to submit its report within three working days.
The video footage showed that compounder Dulal Mia was brutally beating up Grade-III students ‘Dalia’ and ‘Sathi’, both 9 years old, with a tree branch and hurling abuses at broad daylight.
