Fardin’s Death: Bushra to be released from prison today
Amatullah Bushra, an accused in a case filed over the death of Buet student Fardin Noor Parash, will walk out of jail on bail today, a day after jail officials received the bail order.
"We got the bail order this [yesterday] evening but it is too late to complete the procedure. We will release her tomorrow [today]," Obaidur Rahman, senior jail super of Kashimpur Women's Central Jail, told The Daily Star.
The private university student, who was arrested in the capital's Banasree two months ago, secured bail on Sunday.
Judge Tahsin Iftekhar of Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court-7 issued the bail order.
On November 10 last year, Rampura police arrested Bushra, a friend of Fardin, from her Banasree house soon after a murder case was filed against her.
She was sent to jail on November 16 after her bail petition was rejected following the completion of her five-day police remand.
Fardin, a third-year student of civil engineering at Buet, was found dead in Shitalakkhya in Narayanganj on November 7, three days after he went missing.
After investigating the incident for over a month, the Detective Branch of police and Rab on December 14 said Fardin died by suicide after jumping off a bridge into the river.
A day later, DB Chief Mohammad Harun Or Rashid said they did not find Bushra's involvement in the incident.
