Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested the student who allegedly killed his teacher at Ashulia on the outskirts of the capital.

A team of the elite force arrested Ashraful Ahsan Zitu, a tenth grader, from Shreepur in Gazipur on Wednesday evening.

ANM Imran Khan, senior assistant director (Legal and Media Wing) of RAB Headquarters, confirmed it to the Daily Sun.

He said that a press briefing on his arrest would be held at RAB media centre in Kawran Bazar in the capital on Thursday.

Details on the incident would be revealed at the briefing, he said.

Zitu, a student of Haji Yunus Ali School and College, attacked Utpal Kumar Sarker, a lecturer of political science in the institution, leaving him seriously injured, on Saturday.

Utpal succumbed to his injuries at Savar’s Enam Medical College Hospital on Monday morning.

Utpal’s brother Ashim Kumar Sarkar filed the case after the incident.

Zitu beat his teacher with a cricket stump when the victim was watching a cricket match at the college playground.
