Dhaka: The National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) on Tuesday suspended its artist-cum-designer Suzaul Abedin for errors in the school textbooks.
The action was taken against him following the preliminary report of a probe committee formed earlier by the board to investigate the matter, said an Education Ministry release.
Earlier on Monday, the ministry made two officials -- NCTB chief editor Pritish Kumar Sarkar and its senior expert Lana Humaira Khan -- officers on special duty (OSDs) over the errors.
Meanwhile, the ministry formed a three-member probe committee, headed by its additional secretary Ruhi Rahman, to look into the flaws. The committee was asked to submit its full report within seven working days.
The government is distributing a total of 36,21,82,285 textbooks among 4.25 crore students of pre-primary and secondary levels for the 2017 academic session at free of cost across the country.
However, numerous spelling and printing mistakes were detected in the textbooks.
