The victim's sister filed the case with a Dhaka court against Anvir over rape and murder of the college student earlier this month 

Bashundhara Group Managing Director (MD) Sayem Sobhan Anvir has sought anticipatory bail from the High Court (HC) in the case filed on charges of rape and murder of college student Mosarrat Jahan Munia.

The plea has been put on the cause list of the bench of Justice Mostafa Zaman Islam and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar for a hearing on Thursday, reports media.

Munia’s elder sister Nusrat Jahan Tania had filed the case with Dhaka Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal 8 against Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, his son Anvir, and six others on September 6.

The others named in the case are the Bashundhara chairman’s wife Afroza Akter, Anvir’s wife Sabrina Sobhan, showbiz models Faria Mahbub Piasha and Saifa Rahman Mim, Munia’s flat owner Ibrahim Ahmed Ripon and his wife Sharmim Akhter.

After an initial hearing, Judge Mafruza Parveen asked Gulshan police to accept the allegations as FIR.

On September 7, Metropolitan Magistrate Debabrata Biswas gave the PBI time till October 6 to file its investigation report.

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, Gulshan police station OC 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.
