The High Court has also kept the murder case in record for rule hearing

A probe committee has found no proof of negligence on the part of the Sonagazi madrasa chairman in connection with the murder of NusratJahan Rafi.

The committee formed by the public administration and education secretaries submitted its report to the High Court on Monday.

The High Court also kept the Nusrat murder case in record for rule hearing after court vacation.

The High Court bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader ordered the murder case be kept in record after hearing a writ petition on Monday.

The High Court directed the secretaries to form the committee after Supreme Court barrister Yunus Ali Akandhad filed a writ petition to take necessary action against PK Enamul Karim, additional district magistrate and the chairman of the madrasa’s managing committee, on June 30.

On March 27, Siraj-Ud-Daula, principal of Feni’sSonagaziIslamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, reportedly sexually harassed Nusrat, an Alim examinee, in his office.

Nusrat’s mother filed a case in this connection the next day.

On June 21, Nusrat and her mother went to Enamul Karim’s office to file a complaint against the principal just after a week, but he did not take any action.

On April 6, Nusrat was set afire by a group of people loyal to the principalon the rooftop of the madrasa’s administration buildingas she refused to withdraw the case. She succumbed to her burn injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10.
