Teacher gets 8 years in jail for sexually harassing student


A court in Rangamati on Thursday sentenced a music teacher to eight years imprisonment for sexually harassing a female student for two years. The court also fined the teacher a Tk5 lakh.

Rangamati Women and Children Tribunal Judge AEM Ismail Hossain handed down the verdict.

Md Saiful Islam, the public prosecutor of the court, confirmed the matter.

The court asked the district's deputy commissioner to give the fine to the student after taking it from the convict, he added.

According to the case statement, Ranajit sexually harassed his 18-year-old student at least three times from April 2020 to March 2022 while teaching her at her home.

Later, the girl's father filed a case accusing the teacher under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act 2000 at the local police station.
