A mobile court today jailed a youth for 10 months and 10 days for sexually harassing a female SSC examinee at an exam hall in Rajshahi’s Durgapur upazila.
The convicted, Afzal Sharif, 18, a college student of Bhabanipur village of the upazila, was taken into police custody after the verdict, said local Assistant Commissioner (land) Samar Kumar Paul who led the mobile court.
Afzal along with his two friends illegally entered Bokhtiarpur High School centre around 9.30am, half an hour before the examinations began, and attempted to sexually harass the girl, our Rajshahi correspondent reports quoting the AC.
The stalkers were locked into an altercation with the other girls at the exam centre as they tried to protest inside the exam centre.
At one stage, duty teachers managed to catch only Afzal and produced him before the mobile court which later handed down the verdict, said Mahbubur Rahman, the UNO’s representative at the examination centre.
