A case has been filed against three teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College (VNSC); acting principal Naznin Ferdous, morning shift in-charge Jinnat Ara and class teacher Hasna Hena over the suicide of schoolgirl Aritree Adhikari. 

Victim’s father Dilip Adhikari filed the case with Paltan police station on Tuesday night accusing the trio of provoking Aritree to commit suicide, Paltan Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mahmudul Haq said.

Aritree Adhikari,15, a ninth-grade student, reportedly committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday after allegedly being rebuked by teachers for using cell phone during examination.

Moreover, two separate prove committees had been formed by the authorities of Education Ministry and Viquarunnisa Noon School and College yesterday, a day after Aritree reportedly committed suicide.
