Slain Rifat Sharif’s wife Minni arrested

Barguna Police on Tuesday night arrested Aysha Siddika Minni for her alleged involvement in Rifat Sharif murder case after a day-long interrogation at the Barguna SP office in the district.

Police arrested Minni at 9:00pm after day-long interrogation as her connection into Rifat murder primarily found.

Barugna Police super Maruf Hossain confirmed the arrest of Minni at a press conference at his office around 9:30pm tonight.

Earlier, a team of police went to Minni’s house near Barguna Police Lines around 9:45am and took her to the Barguna SP office for asking questions about the brutal killing of her husband.

Minni’s father Moazzem Hossain Kishor told the newsmen that his daughter was brought to the police lines to identify a suspect in connection with the murder.

Minni was taken to the police lines from her father’s house at Nowakata village in Barguna Sadar upazila barely three days after her father-in-law brought allegation that she had a connection in Rifat Sharif murder.

On July 13, Abdul Halim Dulal Sharif, father of Rifat Sharif, demanded immediate arrest of his daughter-in-law Minni.

Rifat Sharif, 25, an internet service provider, was attacked and killed in a broad daylight by two youths and some others with sharp weapons near Barguna Government College in front of his wife on June 26.

In a video footage, Minni was apparently shown trying to protect her husband during the attack. She was also named as the main eye witness in the case.

Later at night, the victim’s father filed the murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station, accusing 12 people including prime suspects Nayan and Rifat Farazi. Of them, Nayan was killed in a “gunfight” and Rifat Farazi was arrested later.
