Four surrender in Rifat murder case

Another four accused surrendered before a Barguna court on Sunday in the Rifat murder case.

They surrendered before the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Court Judge Md Sirajul Islam, around 10:30am.

They are Mohaiminul Islam Sifat, Prince Molla, Rakibul Hasan Rifat Hawlader, and Raihan Bond.

Earlier on October 3, a Barguna court ordered the police to seize the wealth of eight fugitives accused in the murder of local youth Rifat Sharif, while setting October 16 for the next hearing. 

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.
