Boalkhali police in Chittagong are yet to arrest the primary school teacher who was accused on Thursday of beating a student to death.
Twelve-year-old Bristi Das, a student of Paschim Kodurkhil Koibortopara Government Primary School, died on Thursday, twelve days after she was beaten allegedly by his private tutor Babla Dutta, also an assistant teacher at the school. Her father filed a murder case on the same day.
Police have searched Babla's house in the upazila, his in-law's house in Patiya upazila and Babla's rented house in Kotwali of Chittagong city.
“We have also tried to track his mobile phone but it was turned off,” said Sub-Inspector Mustak Chowdhury.
Dr Pradip Kumar Nath of Chittagong Medical College Hospital, who conducted the post-mortem, said, “From primary observation it seems that Dristi died from injuries she received when she was beaten.”
