A Dhaka court has deferred charge framing hearing against Jatiya Party MP AKM Salim Osman to October 22 in a case filed for humiliating schoolteacher Shyamol Kanti Bhakta in public in Narayanganj.
Dhaka Chief Judicial Magistrate Jasmine Ara Begum passed the order after hearing on a time petition filed by Salim's lawyer Siddiqur Rahman, reports UNB.
Another accused Md Opu remained absconding.
On May in 2016, Shyamol Kanti, 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 MP Salim Osman.
A video clip of the incident went viral on social media network sparking off huge protests across the country.
