Terming unexpected the humiliation of a Narayanganj school teacher by the local MP, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday said they will take action in this regard if the Education Ministry requests them.

“The Narayanganj incident is related to a teacher, and now the Education Minister is looking into it. If he [Education Minister] requests us, then we’ll take action in this regard,” he said.

The minister further said, “Everybody respects teachers. What happened to the Narayanganj teacher is unexpected, and it’s not descent. Those of us who saw the incident are shocked and worried.”

Asaduzzaman came up with the remarks at Rajarbagh Police Lines Barrack ground in the afternoon after joining namaz-e-janaza for two
police constables-- Md Samidul Haque, 30, and Motahar Hossain, 28--who died in Mali in a cyclone on Sunday while serving under the UN peacekeeping mission there.

As his attention was drawn to a High Court rule upon his ministry and other authorities to take action against the Narayanganj MP, Kamal
said, “If there’s any direction from the High Court, we’ll comply with it.”

Earlier in the day, the High Court issued a rule asking the authorities concerned, including the Home and Law Ministries, to explain why action would not be taken against Narayanganj MP AKM Salim Osman and his associates for humiliating a school teacher in Bandar upazila of the district.

On May 13, locals beat Shyamal Kanti Bhakta, headmaster of Piyar Sattar Latif High School in Bandar area of Narayanganj, for allegedly
hurting religious sentiment. At one stage, local MP AKM Salim Osman forced him to sit up and down holding his ears. The incident went
viral on social media and sparked off widespread criticisms.

About Comilla Victoria College student Tonu murder, he said the mystery behind the incident is unraveling gradually. “Our CID is properly looking into the matter, and it has the capability to do so.”

He also hoped that the CID will complete their investigation in the right way unearthing the reasons behind the murder.

Police recovered the body of Sohagi Jahan Tonu, 19, a second year history student of Victoria College and a member of Victoria College Theatre, from Comilla’s Mynamati Cantonment area on March 22 this year.

A case was filed with Kotwali police station in Comilla the following day. Later, the case was shifted to the CID.
