Nusrat murder: Another accused arrested
Police on Saturday morning arrested another accused over the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
Arrested Iftekhar Uddin Rana, 21, is one of the suspected plotters of arson attack on Nusrat.
bdnews24.com adds: Rana from Charganesh in Feni’s Sonagazi fled after the attack on Nusrat on Apr 6.
Assailants tricked her onto the rooftop when the Alim candidate went to the madrasa on that day to sit for exams.
They set her on fire as she refused to withdraw sexual abuse charges against principal SM Siraj-ud-Daula. Arrested on the sexual harassment allegations on Mar 27, Siraj orchestrated the killing from jail, police said.
His follower and madrasa student Nur Uddin met him in jail on Apr 4 and then plotted the attack on the following day in a meeting with students Shahadat Hossain Shamim, Jabed Hossain, Abdul Quader and another person, police had earlier said but had not disclosed the name of the last person.
Now Rana has been arrested. PBI’s Moinuddin said Rana was sent to Feni earlier on Saturday and would be produced in the court on Sunday.
