Police says till now, eight accused in Nusrat's murder case have been arrested

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PIB), on Wednesday, arrested Abdul Kader Manik, 25, another key accused in Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder case, in Dhaka.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Nusrat murder case Investigation Officer Md Shah Alam (PBI) said: "Till now, eight accused in Nusrat's murder case have been arrested. We also have detained 10 suspects who might have been involved in Nusrat's murder. They are being kept at the Feni jail. 

"Among the accused, Shamim and Nuruddin have given confessional statements regarding their direct involvement in Nusrat's murder."

Kader, a teacher of Sonagazi Islami Fazil (Degree) Madrasa in Feni, stood guard at the entrance of the institution when Nusrat was set afire on the roof of the administrative building on April 6; according to confessional statements of two other key accused, Nuruddin and Shahadat Hossain Shamim.

Earlier on Wednesday, two other suspects were also produced before the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Sharif Uddin Ahmed by police following their arrests.

PBI arrested Sharif from Dhaka’s Kamrangirchar area around 12pm on Wednesday.

Nusrat's classmate Moni was taken into police custody from in front of the madrasa on Tuesday afternoon.

PBI Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Moniruzzaman said: “Sharif was guarding the madrasa front gate when the incident occurred on April 6.

"One of the prime accused, Shahadat, in his confessional statement, said Moni poured kerosene on Nusrat's body before she was set on fire.”

He said: "Shahdat also said Moni is the one who supplied them with the three burqas and gloves."

"The confessional statement matches Nusrat's description of the incident which she provided while undergoing treatment at the hospital."

The number of arrestees in the case now stands at 17.

Alim examinee Nusrat suffered 80% burns when she was set on fire — by four burqa-clad unknown assailants, who were allegedly followers of now suspended madrasa Principal Sirajuddaula — on the roof of the institution at Sonagazi on April 6.

She was attacked for refusing to withdraw a case her family had filed, last month, against Sirajuddaula for sexually harassing and assaulting her.

Her family filed another case against eight people, including Sirajuddaula, on April 8 over the attack on Nusrat. This case was later accepted as a murder case.

The 18-year-old girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10 after battling death for five days.
