Nusrat killing: Another accused Moni remanded

A Feni court on Wednesday placed madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s classmate Kamrun Nahar Moni on a five-day remand for her suspected involvement in the murder of Nusrat.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Soraf Uddin Ahmmed passed the order after inspector Md Shah Alam of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), also investigation officer of the case, produced her before the court seeking a 10-day remand.

PBI team arrested Moni on Monday night as accused Nur Uddin and Shahadat Hossain Shamim in their confessional statement revealed Moni’s name. Moni supplied them borka.

Moni, adopted daughter of late Azizul Haque of Iman Ali Haji house in Sonagazi bus stand area, was classmate of Nusrat and also an Alim examinee.

On April 6, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre allegedly by people loyal to the principal of her madrasa after he was arrested and subsequently suspended as she had accused him of sexually harassing her in Sonagaziupazila of Feni district.

According to the PBI, she was among the five people who set Nusrat on fire at the madrasa's rooftop on April 6.


Nusrat Jahan lost her battle for life on April 10 at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in the capital.
