Mosarrat Jahan Munia was found hanging from a ceiling fan at a flat in Dhaka’s Gulshan

The sister of college student Mosarrat Jahan Munia, who was found dead in a Gulshan apartment, has brought charges of rape and murder against Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, and his son and the group’s managing director Sayem Sobhan Anvir. 

On Monday, Nusrat Jahan Tania, elder sister of the victim, filed a new case with the Dhaka Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-8 against the Bashundhara bosses and six others.

Earlier, she had filed a case accusing Anvir of provocation to suicide after Munia’s death. Police filed a report with a court on July 19, absolving the Bashundhara top official of any crime.

Police recovered Mosarat's body hanging from a ceiling fan in a flat in Dhaka’s upscale neighbourhood of Gulshan on April 26 this year.

The next day, Nusrat filed a case against Anvir accusing him of abetting her sister’s suicide. She filed the case under Section 306 of the Penal Code.

A Dhaka court cleared Anvir of the charges on August 18. 

At the time, the court also rejected the no-confidence petition filed by Munia’s elder sister Nusrat Jahan.

Earlier on July 19, Officer-in-Charge of Gulshan police station Abul Hasan, the investigation officer of the case, filed the final report in the case with the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court.

Mosarat and Anvir were in a relationship for two years, police said earlier. Anvir visited the apartment several times and was last seen there on April 20, according to CCTV footage.
