The court says police are doing the investigation, so it can't interfere on it

The High Court has refused to intervene into the issue of taking Aysha Siddiqa Minni on a remand as the investigation over the killing of her husband Rifat Sharif in Barguna is going on.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader on Thursday refused to grant a prayer for cancelling the remand of Minni.

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Faruk Hossain came to the apex court with some newspaper reports on the Barguna court order that placed Minni on a five-day remand in the sensational murder case.

The court said that police are doing the investigation, so it can't interfere on it.

The SC lawyer told the court that Minni is the principal witness of the case, but police arrested her as an accused of the case.

The lawyer verbally prayed to the HC to direct the lower court on a suo moto move to cancel the remand order.         

In reply, the court told him to follow the criminal rules and to appeal before it through proper channel. 

After the court order, the lawyer said: "As soon as police took her (Minni) in remand, the motive of the case has been changed. For this reason I have come to the high court with the prayers."

Rifat Sharif, 22, was hacked to death by criminals in front of his wife Minni, in broad daylight, in the district town on June 26. 

Rifat’s father, Dulal Sharif, filed a murder case against 12 named and five or six unknown attackers with Barguna police station.
