Tofazzal Hossain, Pabna: Two cadres were beaten by his cadre on the instructions of the chairman for not inviting them to the inter-annual sports and cultural competition of a primary school in Bhangura, Pabna. Later, the cadres vandalized the stage and attacked the teachers. The victim and eyewitness teachers alleged that the beating and attack was carried out on the instructions of Monwar Khan Mithu, chairman of the remote Khanmarich Union of the upazila around 10:30 am on Saturday. It is learned that sports competitions and cultural programs were organized by dividing 27 schools of Khanmarich Union into two parts. On this occasion, sports competitions and cultural programs were inaugurated at Chandipur playground of the union with the participation of students of 14 schools. Veteran headmasters of the school inaugurated the program at 9 am without inviting outside guests on the instructions of the Upazila Education Officers. Meanwhile, Union Chairman Monwar Khan expressed his displeasure over not being invited to the event at around 10.15 am. At that time the teachers asked him to sit down but he left. After a while, the head teachers went to the chairman's office next to the playground to discuss the matter on the advice of the education officer. Enraged by this, on the orders of Monwar Khan, some youths including Taukir, Masud and Abul Kalam beat Habibur Rahman (56), the headmaster of Khanmarich Primary School with a bamboo stick. At this time other teachers ran away and escaped. Later, around 10:30 am, about 15 youths including Taukir, Masud and Abul Kalam attacked the teachers with sticks and vandalized the stage. Several teachers, including Rabia Khatun, the headmistress of Chandipur Primary School, were injured in the attack. Immediately after this, when the students and teachers left the field, the program became a pond. Hasinuzzaman Swapan, an assistant teacher at Sultanpur School, said special people were not invited to the event on the advice of education officials. The chairman has been invited to the final competition on the 30th. But by beating the teachers for this trivial reason, the chairman created this horrible situation. Extreme panic is prevailing in the area at present. Chairman Monwar Khan was called on his mobile phone at least four times to talk about the matter but he did not receive it. He said he could not even speak if called from another number. Confirming the incident, Upazila Education Officer Abul Kalam Azad said that the education officials along with the police station administration came to the spot after learning about the incident. The matter has been reported to the higher administration and action is being taken through the police station administration.
