Her friend Mizanur Rahman Rony was given two years of rigorous jail term for sheltering Oishee while another friend Asaduzzaman Jony was acquitted of the charges as his involvement in the murder was not proved.

The court also fined Oishee Tk40,000, in default of which she has to spend two years in jail; and Rony Tk5,000, in default of which he has to suffer one month more in jail.

Judge Sayeed Ahmed of Dhaka Speedy Trial Tribunal 3 pronounced the verdict at a jam packed courtroom in the presence of the three accused.

After the verdict was delivered, Oishee’s uncle Abdur Razzak, who was present at the courtroom yesterday, told this correspondent that they were not happy about the judgement.

The family members said they would file an appeal against the verdict.
