Police arrested Rifat’s wife Aysha Siddiqa Minni on Tuesday night after a daylong interrogation. A court granted police five days to interrogate her in custody.
Minni 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.
