Bushra suffering in jail for 2 months for no crime: family
The family members of Amatullah Bushra said the private university student has been suffering in jail for two months for committing no crime.
"She is innocent... We are now waiting for her release from jail," her uncle Mazharul Islam said after a Dhaka court today finally granted her bail in a case filed following the death of Buet student Fardin Noor Parash.
Obaidur Rahman, senior jail superintendent of Kashimpur Women's Central Jail, said they will take steps for her release after getting the court's order.
"But who will compensate her for the trauma of being in jail without committing any crime? We do not even know if she can put that trauma behind her," Mazharul said.
"Bushra's father was devastated seeing the fate of her daughter," he added.
The family is now worried about her education and future.
On November 7, Fardin's body was recovered from Shitalakhya river in Narayanganj's Siddhirganj, three days after he went missing.
Police arrested Bushra on November 10, after Fardin's father Kazi Nooruddin filed a case with Rampura Police Station against her.
After over a month of investigation, the Detective Branch of police and the Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) on December 11 last year said Fardin died by suicide after jumping off a bridge into the Shitalakkhya river.
A day later, DB chief Mohammad Harun Or Rashid said they did not find Bushra's involvement in the incident and would let the court know about this matter.
