Jatra team evicted, classes resume

Classes at Dhekuria Government Primay School in Kazipur upazila resumed yesterday after Kazipur police and upazila administration evicted the jatra team from the school premises.
Deputy Commissioner Humayun Kabir earlier ordered the officials and police to stop the illegal activities following publication of a report "School shut as AL men occupy it for Jatra" published in The Daily Star on Tuesday.
UNO Suratuzzaman and OC Kazi Jahidul Hafiz rushed to the spot in the morning and evicted the jatra people and removed their pandals from the school premises. They also asked Mariam Lovely, headmistress of the school to resume the classes immediately.
The school authorities through a loud speaker announced reopening of the school and asked the students to attend classes from 10.30am.
Although the jatra artistes left the venue bag and baggage none of the organisers was arrested.
The school was shut on Thursday last as some local influentials including AL men had arranged indecent dance and gambling in the name of jatra on the school premises.
