‘Press charges in Rifat murder case 3 Sept’

Prothom Alo English Desk | Update:

Rifat MurderA Barguna court on Thursday asked the investigation officer to press charges in the Rifat Sharif murder case on 3 September, reports UNB. 

Senior judicial magistrate Sirajul Islam Gazi fixed the date as the IO could not submit a charge-sheet on the scheduled day on Thursday, and sought time to this end.

All the accused of the case, including Rifat's wife Aysha Siddika Minni, were produced before the court during the hearing.

Rifat Sharif, 22, was attacked with sharp weapons near the main gate of Barguna Govt College on 26 June. His wife Minni appeared to be trying to protect him during the attack that was caught on surveillance camera.

Police arrested 16 people in this connection. But main accused Nayon Bond was killed in a reported gunfight with law enforcers on 2 July.

Police arrested Minni on 16 July over the murder of her husband and was denied bail several times.

She reportedly confessed to her involvement in the murder before the court on 19 July, two days after her arrest.

On 31 July, Minni filed a petition with a Barguna court seeking withdrawal of her confessional statement over the murder.
