Nusrat murder case verdict today


FENI, Oct 24, 2019 (BSS) – A special tribunal here is scheduled to
pronounce judgement today in the case lodged over murder of Sonagazi
madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

Judge Md Mamunur Rashed of Feni Women and Child Repression Prevention
Tribunal on September 30 set today to pronounce the verdict as both the
state and defence concluded their arguments on that day.

All the 16 accused in the case were present before the court while
fixing date for delivering the verdict.

Nusrat, a student of Soniagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, was set on
fire on April 6, 2019, by stooges of madrasa principal Md Sirajuddoula as she
refused to withdraw a case filed against the crooked teacher for sexual
harassment. Nusrat succumbed to her injuries at Dhaka Medical College
Hospital on April 10.

Nusrat’s brother Mahmudul Hasan Noman on April 8, had filed the case
against eight.

Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) on June 29 filed charge sheet
against 16. The court examined 87 witnesses on different occasions June 27 to
September 30.

Nusrat had accused Sirajuddoula of harassing her sexually on March 27
while she was exposed to his extreme vengeance on April 6 when she went to
the madrasa to appear in Alim examination.

A group of masked youths, later found to be the cronies of the disgraced
principal, took Nusrat to the rooftop of the madrasa and set her on fire
after tying her with her scarf.
