The authorities of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College suspended the classes and examinations (from class I to XII) in all branches for an indefinite period amid growing protests of the students and guardians over the suicide of Aritree Adhikari.
Mustari Sultana, a sociology teacher and a representative of teachers to the school governing body, said all the activities of the educational institution will remain suspended until further notice.
She said the decision has been taken as their students are unable to give attention to their study amid the evolv-ing situation.
Responding to a question, Sultana said the school will reopen when the situation will get normal. The students will be informed through mobile phone SMS, while the guardians will be informed about the exam dates.
Earlier in the day, the students of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College resumed their demonstrations on the second consecutive day on Wednesday, demanding punishment and removal of its principal and accused teach-ers over the suicide of its student Aritree.
Meanwhile the probe body, formed by Education Ministry, has found three teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College responsible for the suicide of Aritree Adhikari, said Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid while briefing journalists at his Secretariat office.
Aritree Adhikari, a Class-IX student, committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday after allegedly being rebuked by the teachers for using mobile phone during examination.
