On February 18, 2020, Shahabuddin took Murshida to his house; she had been missing since then.

Being unable to find her anywhere, Murshida’s family filed a general diary with Dasar police station that night. As there was no remedy, Murshida's mother filed a case against five people including Shahabuddin on March 4 with the same police station.

Madaripur DB police took charge of the investigation on December 18 as there was no progress in the case for a long time.

On December 31, Shahabuddin Akon, the main accused, voluntarily surrendered to the court.
