Shipra Rani Debnath Collected

She along with her classmates Shahedul Islam Sifat and Tahsin Rifat Noor were in Cox’s Bazar to shoot a documentary for Sinha’s YouTube channel 

Shipra Rani Debnath, a student of Stamford University’s film and media studies department and a crew member of slain Major (retd) Sinha Md Rashed Khan, was wrongfully arrested, said her family members.

Shipra’s mother, who lives in Mirpur upazila of Kushtia, told Dhaka Tribune that her daughter was very passionate about film making and thus got herself admitted in the Stamford University’s film and media studies department.

“She has no bad habits. We are just shocked by what happened with our kid,” she added while seeking anonymity.

“We are confused. Everyone in the family is now terrified,” she added.

According to the mother, Shipra was living alone in Dhaka’s Rampura area for her studies.

“We were informed about the incident on Sunday. The allegations brought against my daughter are untrue and fabricated,” she alleged.

Shipra's father, former BGB member Navkumar Debnath, said the allegations against his daughter were fabricated and that she is being framed as part of a conspiracy.

Shipra is from Hajarhati village in Kushtia’s Mirpur upazila. She is the eldest sibling and has a younger brother.

However, following Sinha’s murder, Sifat and Shipra are now in jail.

Sifat, who accompanied Sinha at the time of the incident, was arrested right after the killing of the former Army major and he was sent to jail in a case filed by police.
