Md Shamim is one of the 18 people arrested in the case so far

A Feni court has granted police five days to interrogate Md Shamim in the case filed over the murder of madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

Senior Judicial Magistrate Sharafuddin passed the order on Thursday afternoon, after police produced the 19-year-old before the court.

Shamim was a classmate of Nusrat at Sonagazi Senior Fazil (Degree) Madrasa. He was arrested from Sonagazi upazila’s Charchandia village on Monday for his suspected involvement in the April-6 attack on Nusrat.

Police Bureau of Investigation’s (PBI) Additional SP Moniruzzaman said they had sought seven days to question Shamim, but the court granted five days.

PBI has arrested 18 people in the case so far. Of them, seven are accused in the murder case, while the others are suspects.

Of the key accused, Nuruddin, Shahadat Hossain Shamim and Abdur Rahim Sharif have already confessed in court to their direct involvement in the attack on Nusrat.

Alim examinee Nusrat suffered 80% burns after she was set on fire by four burqa-clad unidentified assailants, who were allegedly followers of now suspended madrasa principal Sirajuddaula, on the roof of the institution at Sonagazi on April 6.

The 18-year-old girl was attacked for refusing to withdraw a case her family had filed last month against Sirajuddaula for sexually harassing and assaulting her.

Her family filed another case against eight people, including Sirajuddaula, on April 8 over the attack on Nusrat. That case was later accepted as a murder case.

Sirajuddaula, who was arrested after the first case was filed, is currently behind bars, along with six other accused.

Nusrat died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10 after battling death for five days.
