The court also ordered the investigation officer of the case filed to submit a report within seven days.  

According to the case statement, Abontika's mother said Amman Siddique harassed her daughter sexually on online and offline platforms.

JnU Assistant Procter Din Islam abused her verbally when Abanti informed him about the matter, added the case statement.

Abontika, a student of the 2017-18 academic year of the JnU Law Department, hanged herself at her Cumilla residence after accusing her classmate Amman and teacher  Deen Islam , who was relieved from the post of assistant proctor of the university, in a Facebook post around 10 pm on Friday.

In the Facebook post before committing suicide, Abantika said that her classmate Amman Siddique and assistant proctor Deen Islam would be responsible for her suicide.

'If I ever die by suicide, my classmate Amman Siddiqui and assistant proctor Deen Islam, who supported him, will be solely responsible for my death. I complained to the Proctor's office that Amman was threatening me offline and also online but I did not get any benefit. Deen Islam scares me in many ways for the sake of Amman. He said that expelling me is very easy for him. I know I won't get any justice here,” she wrote.

Hours after death of Abontika by suicide, massive protest broke out and continued till Saturday morning, demanding justice for the student.
