A teacher was allegedly beaten up by the son of the headmaster of the same school for Waz-mahfil funds in Ishwardi on Thursday afternoon.
The injured teacher was identified as Faruk Hossain, an assistant-teacher of the Ishwardi Government Primary School.
Faruk alleged that Dipu, son of the school’s headmaster Saleha Begum, came to the school office around 2:30pm and demanded Tk 300 for holding a Waz-mahfil in the locality.
Although he was ready to contribute Tk 100, Dipu started calling him bad names after refusing the money and then harassed him physically, Faruk added.
Dipu locked into an altercation with teacher Faruk Hossain and misbehaved with him, said Saleha Begum, headmaster of the school.
Upazila nirbahi officer Md Badruzzaman said he got a written allegation in this connection. Necessary measures would be taken after investigation.
