Twenty-four people were accused in the murder case filed by Rifat's father. Minni, initially named as a witness, was later arrested on 16 July last year and made an accused.

Sabbir Ahmed alias Nayon Bond, the main accused, was killed in a reported gunfight with police on 2 July.

The High Court on 29 August granted bail to Minni on condition that she would remain in her father's custody and refrain from talking to the media.
