Nusrat killing: Shamim on 3-day remand

A court here on Thursday granted three-day remand of Shahadat Hossain Shamim, one of the main accused in Feni Madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder case.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Court Judge Md Jakir Hossain passed the order after the investigation officer sought five days for interrogating the suspect.

Earlier on Wednesday, Shamim confessed to his crimes before the court. He was arrested on April 12 from Mymensingh.

Meanwhile, Law Minister Anisul Huq said that the government has taken all measures to ensure swift trail of the case.

On April 6, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre allegedly for refusing to withdraw a sexual harassment case against her madrasa principal in Sonagazi upazila.

She died on April 10 at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
