Jatiya Party (JP) lawmaker AKM Salim Osman on Sunday surrendered before Dhaka court in a case filed over an assault on Narayanganj school teacher Shyamal Kanti Bhakta.
The court on Sunday asked Salim Osman to appear before it on May 23.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Jesmin Ara Begum passed the order around 11:00am after Salim Osman surrendered before the court and submitted a bail petition.
The court did not hear the petition as he is on a 15-day bail given by the High Court.
The same court on March 29 asked Salim to appear before it on Sunday.
On May last year, a video clip went viral on the social media, showing how the headmaster of Piyar Sattar Latif High School in Narayanganj was humiliated and forced to squat holding his ears in the presence of local Jatiya Party lawmaker AKM Salim Osman.
On May 29, 2016, the education ministry submitted a probe report to the High Court through the attorney general’s office, saying the school's managing committee had forced Shyamal to resign based on an unproven allegation that he hurt religious sentiment of the Muslims.
Later, Shyamal was reinstated as headmaster of the school..
