A madrassah teacher allegedly tortured a 12 years old student on Thursday morning at Raozatul Ulum Islamia Madrassah at Pashchim Laharkandi of Lakhsmipur on Thursday.
Victim Yasin Arafat is undergoing treatment at Lakhsmipur General Hospital while the accused teacher Abdul Quader Fayezi is absconding.
Md Salim, brother-in-law of the victim, told journalists that Yasin, a hifzul Quran student of the madrassah, wanted to take admission to another madrassah.
Being angry over it, Fayezi chained Yasin and beat him up mercilessly.
Anwar Hossain, resident medical officer at Laksmipur General Hospital, said Yasin’s left leg was chained and marks injuries found across his entire body.
Lakshmipur superintendent of police ASM Mahtabuddin said, ‘We’ve deployed police at the spot. Necessary legal steps will be taken after receiving a complaint.’ When contacted, the madrassah authorities refused to talk to journalists.
