Police have arrested the Viqarunnisa Noon School and College teacher Hasna Hena who is accused along with two others of provoking Aritree Adhikary to commit suicide.
The members of Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Detective Branch detained Hena from Uttara Wednesday night.
Khandaker Nurunnabi, deputy commissioner of Detective Branch (East) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, confirmed the matter.
Three teachers -- acting principal Nazneen Ferdous, morning shift in-charge of Bailey Road branch Zeenat Akhter and Aritree's class teacher Hasna Hena--were suspended following an education ministry order.
These actions came hours after the government scrapped "monthly pay order" benefits for the teachers and education minister Nurul Islam Nahid instructed the school's governing body to fire the teachers.
Aritry Adhikary was found hanging from the ceiling of her home in the capital’s Shantinagar on Monday hours after she and her parents were allegedly insulted by the three teachers of the school.
Victim's father Dilip Adhikari filed a case against the three teachers of the school.
