A Barguna court fixed July 30 for hearing the petition seeking bail for Aysha Siddika Minni in a case filed over the murder of her husband Rifat Sharif.
Advocate Mahmudul Bari Aslam, general secretary of Barguna District Lawyers’ Association, filed the bail petition with Barguna District and Sessions Judge Court at 9:30am today, reports our Patuakhali correspondent.
On Sunday, Senior Judicial Magistrate Mohammad Serajul Islam Gazi rejected her bail petition.
Minni was arrested on June 16 following a daylong interrogation in the case. A day later, she was placed on a five-days remand.
She is the key witness of the murder that took place in front of her college on June 26. Rifat Sharif, a 25-year-old internet service provider, was indiscriminately hacked by a group of youths there.
In a video footage of the incident that went viral in the social media, Minni was seen screaming and trying in vain to save her husband from the assailants.
The victim’s father filed the murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station against 12 people on the same day.
The prime accused in the case, Nayon Bond, was killed in a “gunfight” with police on July 2.
Meanwhile, acting Senior Judicial Magistrate of Barguna Yasin Arafat rejected a bail petition of Saimun, another accused in the case.
