Nusrat Jahan Rafi, who died of extensive burn injuries on Wednesday, has been laid to rest at her family graveyard in Feni.

She was buried beside her grandmother’s grave on Thursday evening, after her namaz-e-janaza at the Saber Pilot High School, in Sonagazi upazila.

Her funeral prayer saw the biggest number of turnout in the district, with thousands of grievers including students, teachers, and members of child and human rights organizations, attending from all across the country.

Feni 3 lawmaker, Masud Uddin Chowdhury along with Upazila Chairman, Jahir Uddin Mahmud Lifton also attended the funeral prayers.

Eighteen-year-old Nusrat was set aflame by burqa-clad assailants on Saturday, when she went to sit for her Alim exams at Sonagazi Islamia Fazil Degree Madrasah.

They allegedly lured her to the roof, poured kerosene on her, and set her on fire, for refusing to withdraw sexual assault charges against the madrasah principal, Siraj-ud-Daula.
