Rifat murder: Minni seeks bail from HC
Published : 05 Aug 2019, 14:12
Aysha Siddika Minni, wife of slain Rifat Sharif, on Monday moved the High Court seeking bail in a case filed over the murder of her husband.
The plea was filed before the bench of Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain and Md Mostafizur Rahman. The HC may hold hearing on the bail petition later in the day.
Advocate ZI Khan Panna, a lawyer of Minni, filed the petition.
Earlier, a Barguna court rejected Minni’s bail petition twice on July 22 and 30 respectively.
Police arrested Minni after a daylong interrogation on July 16. A court placed her on a five-day remand the following day. Three days later, a Barguna court recorded her statement.
On June 26, Rifat, 25, an internet service provider, was indiscriminately hacked to death by a group of men.
A video footage of the incident that went viral in social media, shows Minni screaming and trying in vain to save her husband.
Rifat’s father filed a murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station against 12 people on the day of the murder.
Prime accused in the case, Nayan Bond, was killed in a “gunfight” with police on July 2.
