Feni AL urges to expel defendant lawyer Sohag

Feni's Sadar upazila Awami League has recommended to expel Kazirbagh union AL general secretary advocate Kazi Bulbul Sohag for providing legal assistance to the accused in the case filed for torching madrasha student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

Feni Sadar upazila AL president advocate Noor Hossain said the decision to expel Sohag was taken at a meeting of the upazila committe on Wednesday. He also said advocate Sohag has been  informed about the decision, according to a Bangla online portal news.

Meanwhile, Sohag said he did not know about the decision.

Earlier on April 6, Nusrat Jahan Rafi, an Aleem examinee from Sonagazi Fazil Madrasha, was set on fire allegedly by some fellows as she refused to withdraw a case filed against the madrasha principal for sexual harassment.

She died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Wednesday night.

Police have, so far, arrested 12 persons in connection with the incident. Of them, a number of accused, including the madrasha principal, were  taken on remand.
