A primary schoolteacher, who forced a fifth grader to lick the spit of another student, was transferred on Sunday as punishment for the offence.
The accused is Jamal Uddin, a teacher of Chatura Government Primary School in Kaunia upazila of Rangpur.
Azam Khan Government Primary School in the same upazila is his new workplace, said Upazila Education Officer Swapan Kumar Adhikari.
On Tuesday, Jamal Uddin forced a girl student of Class V at Chatura Government Primary School to lick the spit of another girl of the class as she failed to prepare her homework. Later, the victim disclosed the incident to her parents.
The following day, guardians and students staged demonstration on the school premises, demanding stern action against the accused teacher. Headmaster Khaleda Akter then assured the agitators of taking action against the accused teacher.
On the other hand, Upazila Education Office also formed a one-member probe body to investigate into the allegation.
The committee submitted its report on Sunday.
