Minni placed on 5-day remand

A Barguna court has placed Aysha Siddika Minni on a five-day remand in a case filed over the murder of his husband Rifat Sharif. 

Judge Mohammad Sirajul Islam Gazi of Barguna Judicial Magistrate Court passed the order after the police produced Minni before the court and sought seven-day remand for her. 

Minni was arrested on Tuesday night after police said she ‘appeared to be involved’ in the killing of her husband Rifat Sharif.

Rifat was killed in a broad daylight attack in front of Barguna Government College on June 26 as Minni appeared to be trying to protect her husband.

Dulal Sharif, Rifat’s father, later alleged that his daughter-in-law had a part in the murder and demanded her arrest. The locals supported Dulal’s claims as they formed a human chain on July 14 demanding her arrest.

Minni rejected the allegation and described it as propaganda to protect the killers.

Police have so far arrested 14 people in connection with Rifat’s murder.
