A Barguna court has rejected the bail plea of Ayesha Siddiqua Minni, wife of Rifat Sharif, who was killed in broad daylight outside Barguna Government College on June 26.

Md Sirajul Islam Gazi of Barguna Senior Judicial Magistrate court passed the order around 11:45am on Sunday.

Advocate Md Mahbubul Bari, appointed by Minni's father Mojammel Hossain, represented Minni during the hearing in the murder case of her husband Rifat Sharif. 

Minni turned from a witness to an accused in the sensational murder of Rifat Sharif, after new CCTV footage was found of the incident.

On July 14, addressing the newfound video footage, Rifat's father Abdul Halim Dulal held a press conference demanding the arrest of his daughter-in-law in connection to his son's killing.

This also sparked protests across the country demanding justice for Rifat.

On June 26, 23-year-old Barguna youth Rifat Sharif was attacked in broad daylight by a group of assailants wielding long, sharp weapons in the town's College Road area as his wife seemingly desperately tried to save him.

He later bled to death from the wounds caused by the attack, according to a post-mortem examination conducted at the Barisal Medical College Hospital.

The video of the attack later went viral on the internet, and it sparked outrage across the country.

Slain Rifat’s father, Dulal Sharif, filed a case with Barguna police accusing 12 people. 

The case took a new turn after Dulal pointed the finger at his daughter-in-law Ayesha Siddiqua Minni.
