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.

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.
