Sonagazi madrasa principal charged for sexual assault on Nusrat
Police Bureau of Investigation has submitted a charge sheet against lone accused Feni’s Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Siraj Ud Daula in a case filed over sexual assault on Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
PBI Inspector Md Shah Alam submitted the charge sheet before Feni’s Senior Judicial Magistrate Md Zakir Hossain today, a correspondent from Feni reports quoting plaintiff’s lawyer M Shahjahan Saju.
Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s mother filed the case accusing Siraj Ud Daula a few days before the madrasa student was set ablaze by a group of five unidentified persons on April 6.
The 18-year-old girl was set afire allegedly for refusing to withdraw the sexual assault case filed against Siraj late March.
Nusrat lost her battle for life on April 10, five days after she was set ablaze at the madrasa -- an incident that touched off outrage all over the country.
The Feni court may shift the case to Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal tomorrow.
