A team of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) arrested Shahadat Hossain Shamim, Sonagazi Senior Fazil Madrasa unit Chhatra League president, from Muktagachha upazila in Mymensingh while Jabed Hossain, a student of the madrasa, was arrested from Rampur in Feni.

On 6 April, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre allegedly by people loyal to the principal of her madrasa after he was arrested and subsequently suspended as she had accused him of sexually harassing her.
