Six days after his humiliation by a mob, Shyamal Kanti Bhakta was reinstated as the headmaster of a Narayanganj school.

Led by AKM Salim Osman, a local lawmaker of Jatiya Party who slapped and forced the teacher to squat several times holding his earlobes, the mob also beat him up.
The school management committee suspended him through a letter on the next day.
A government probe committee looked into the matter and found the allegation against the teacher baseless. The education minister dissolved the school’s managing committee and reinstated Shyamal saying “Injustice was done with teacher” today.
