The National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) on Tuesday suspended the designer over the errors in the school textbooks, according to education ministry press release.

Suzaul Abedin, the artist-cum-designer was suspended following the preliminary report of a probe committee formed earlier by the board to investigate the matter.

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 (OSD) over the errors.

Meanwhile, the ministry formed a three member committee headed by its additional secretary Ruhi Rahman to review the matter. The committee was asked to submit its full report within seven working days.

The government distributed nearly 362,182,285 textbooks among about 4.25 crore students between pre-primary and secondary levels for the 2017 academic session across the country.

However, numerous spelling and printing mistakes were detected in the textbooks.
