A court here on Wednesday ordered to send 13 teachers of different high schools to jail in a sedition case filed on charges of preparing a question paper comparing Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with a local union parishad (UP) chairman.
Senior Judicial Magistrate of Banskhali Mohammad Sazzad Hossain pronounced the verdict.
They prepared the question paper on 'Bangladesh and global studies' for class eight first terminal examination held in April this year.
Later, a sedition case was filed following the approval of the Home Ministry against 13 teachers who later got three months advanced bail from the High Court.
As the bail expired today, the convicts appeared before Banskhali court and prayed for bail further but the court turned down the petition and sent them to jail.-BSS
