The High Court on Wednesday refused to grant anticipatory bail to Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir in a case filed over the rape and murder of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia in a flat in Dhaka's Gulshan in April this year. 

The bench of Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar deleted the name of Anvir from the bail petition. 

However, the High Court bench granted anticipatory bail to Anvir's wife Sabrina Sayem for six weeks. 

The court passed the order after holding a hearing on the petition filed by Anvir and his wife seeking anticipatory bail in the case. 

Anvir and his wife appeared before the bench during the hearing of the bail petition. 

Senior lawyer Yusuf Hossain Humayun appeared for the petitioners, while Deputy Attorney General Abu Yahiya Dulal and Assistant Attorney General Mizanur Rahman argued on behalf of the state during the hearing. 

On April 26, police found the body of the 21-year-old college student, Mosarat Jahan Munia, hanging from the ceiling fan of her bedroom in a Gulshan flat.

Munia's elder sister filed the case on September 6 with a Dhaka court against Anvir over the rape and murder of her sister. 

On July 19, Gulshan police station OC Abul Hasan, also the investigating officer of the case, filed the final report to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court. 

On August 18, a Dhaka court relieved Anvir from the charge of abetting the suicide of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia. 

Metropolitan Magistrate Pranab Kumar Hui passed the order after accepting the police's probe report that cleared the accused from the charges in the case. 

On September 6, Munia's elder sister filed a case with Dhaka's 8th Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal against eight persons, including Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, and his son and Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir. 

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) was asked to deal with the case.
