It says will intervene if negligence found in the case

The High Court has said it will not let the Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder case to be lost like Sagar-Runi's, Tonu's, or Mitu's cases.

The bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-al-Jalil came up with the remarks on Thursday when Supreme Court lawyer, Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman, presented a submission before it asking for a judicial inquiry over the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

In the submission, Suman explained, due to the religious sentiments surrounding the main accused in the case—Sonagazi madrasa principal Sirajuddaula—it might be difficult for a sub-inspector to carry out an investigation properly.

The court said: "We sympathize with you. The case has been handed over to the Police Bureau of Investigation (PIB), and the prime minister herself is monitoring the case. In future, if you feel any negligence regarding the matter, come to us; we will intervene."

Sonagazi madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi died around 9:30pm Wednesday, at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital’s burn unit, after battling to survive from grievous 80% burn injuries since Sunday. 

She was set on fire by four unknown assailants, reportedly supporters of Sirajuddaula, on the rooftop of the madrasa last Saturday morning.

Nusrat had previously lodged a sexual harassment case against the principal, accusing him of attempting to rape her on March 27.
