Nusrat’s mother filed a sexual harassment case against Sirajuddaula with Sonagazi police on March 27

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has finalized the charge sheet accusing 16 people in the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

The charge sheet will be submitted to the local court within two to four days, according to PBI officials.

In the charge sheet, Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa’s Principal, SM Sirajuddaula, will supposedly be shown as the instigator, while local Awami League leaders Ruhul Amin and Maksud Alam will respectively be cited as financier and shelter provider to others accused in the case.

On April 6, the girl was set on fire on the roof of the madrasa by people loyal to Sirajuddaula when she refused to withdraw the casefiled by her mother on March 27. She succumbed to burn injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10.

“We found the involvement of 16 people and all of them have been arrested. Of them, nine people gave confessional statements to the court,” PBI Inspector Shah Alam, investigation officer for the case, told Dhaka Tribune, yesterday.

“The involvement of 16 people at different stages has been established. The level of crime of each individual is different," he added.

Nuruddin, Shahadat, Umme Sultana Popy alias Shampa, Kamrunahar Moni, Jabed, Abdur Rahim alias Sharif, Kader, and Jobayer Ahmed, confessed to their involvement in the murder.

Of them, Shahadat, Jabed, Jobayer, Popy, and Moni set Nusrat on fire.

On April 28, the principal accused confessed to a local court that he ordered his followers to kill the Alim examinee for having him arrested in a sexual harassment case, he said.

PBI finds charges against ex-Sonagazi OC to be true

The PBI has found the allegations brought against former Sonagazi police station OC Moazzem Hossain concerning Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s murder to be authentic.

PBI’s Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police Rima Sultana filed the investigation report at the Cyber Tribunal yesterday.

Supreme Court lawyer Syeddul Haque Sumon filed the case against Moazzem under the Digital Security Act on May 15.

The former OC was accused of illegally interrogating madrasa student Nusrat and recording the episode on his phone. The video was later circulated by Moazzem on social media.

Moazzem was withdrawn on April 10 and suspended a month later on charges of negligence of duty.
