The High Court on Thursday passed an order prohibiting suspension of non-government school, college and madrasa teachers for more than six months.

In 2007, a teacher named Badshah Mia was suspended from his job in Baharbagh Secondary School in Magura upazila.
In 2017, he filed a writ petition as accusation against him was not dissolved until then as no definite term was mentioned for keeping a non-government school teacher suspended.
