A court here on Sunday granted bail to Hasna Hena, a teacher of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, in a case filed on charges of provoking a ninth-grader student to commit suicide.

Judge Baki Billah of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court passed the order after Hasna Hena's lawyer Jahangir Alam filed an appeal seeking her bail in the case.

The court granted her bail until filing of a police report, said the lawyer.

Earlier on December 6, Hasna Hena was sent to jail after her arrest from city's Uttara area on December 5.

Aritree Adhikari, a Class-IX student, reportedly committed suicide at their Shantinagar residence in the city on December 3 after allegedly being rebuked by teachers for using mobile phone during examination.

Victim's father Dilip Adhikari filed a case against three teachers of the school.UNB.
