Rifat murder: HC order on Minni's bail plea today

The High Court (HC) is set to dispose its order on a bail petition filed by Aysha Siddika Minni in connection with a case filed over the murder of her husband, Rifat Sharif, on Tuesday.

Earlier on January 8, Minni’s lawyer advocate Mahbubul Bari Aslam filed the petition seeking bail.

The police arrested Minni on July 16 after a day-long interrogation and produced her in the court for remand the following day. No lawyer represented Minni during the remand hearing in the court.

Rifat Sharif, a 25-year-old Internet service provider, was hacked by a group of youths. In a video footage of the incident that went viral in the social media, Minni was seen screaming and trying in vain to save her husband from the assailants. The victim’s father filed a murder case with Barguna Sadar police station against 12 people on the same day.
