A court here on Tuesday accepted charge sheet against SM Sirajuddoula, the principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, in a case filed over sexually harassing his student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Mamunur Rashid accepted the charges and fixed July 17 for indictment.
Shah Alam, investigation officer of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), submitted the 271-page charge sheet on July 3.
According to case details, Sirajuddoula sexually harassed Nusrat in his office on March 27. Her mother filed the case the next day.
On April 6, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre, allegedly by people loyal to the principal, after he was arrested and subsequently suspended after the case was filed.
Nusrat died on April 10 at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
