On March 27, mother of Nusrat Jahan Rafi, 18, an Aleem examinee from Sonagazi Fazil Madrasa, filed a case with Sonagazi police against the madrasa principal Siraj ud Doula for sexually harassing her daughter. Police also arrested the madrasa principal.
The OC, later, illegally interrogated Nusrat and recorded the conversation on his phone. The video was later circulated on the social media.
Nusrat was set on fire allegedly by some fellows in the morning of April 6 as she refused to withdraw a case filed against the madrasa principal for sexual harassment. She died at the Burn Unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital on the night of April 10.
On May 15, Supreme Court lawyer Syeddul Haque Sumon filed a case against OC Moazzem under the Digital Security Act for the illegal interrogation and circulating it on the social media.
