Nodi had filed a dowry case against Rajib last year after he allegedly threw her out when she refused to get him money from her family, according to the case documents.

Her elder sister Champa Begum said Rajib and his associates had verbally abused her on the court premises after she testified against him in court in that case on Tuesday morning.

Police have also detained the caretaker of Nodi’s house, Imran Hossain, and several of his friends to be for questioned over the murder.
