The courtroom fell completely silent, and filled with tension, as the Feni's Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Mamunur Rashid took his seat around 11:05am on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, all of the accused, including two women, were produced at the court's dock. The accused, however, seemed to be at ease; even the prime accused Md Sirajuddaula was seen smiling when the judge stepped into the courtroom.
Before the judge came to the court, the courtroom was bustling with journalists from local and international media, lawyers, members of the law enforcement agencies, and family members of the accused and the victim, who came to witness the judgment of the sensational murder case of madrasa student Nusrat Jahan.
Few minutes later, Nusrat's father along with his two sons also reached to the courtroom, and tried to come to the front, but failed because of the huge crowd.
On the dock, one of the accused, Kamrun Nahar Moni, was tightly holding her one-month-old daughter. Suddenly the baby started crying which broke the silence inside the courtroom. However, she managed to calm her infant daughter down.
At 11:21am, Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Mamunur Rashid started the court proceedings thanking the media, and the investigation agencies for their role.
Then, he started reading out the verdict. After pronouncing capital punishment for all of the accused, the judge left his seat, and went to his room.
As soon as the judge ended delivering the verdict, the courtroom filled with uproar as few of the accused started shouting at the judge.
One of the convicts Absar Uddin started blaming media, and the plaintiffs' lawyers for their fate. Even, he threatened Nusrat's brother Noman saying: "I will come see you after I get released."
Abdul Kader, another convict, told Nusrat's family members, journalists, and lawyers: "All of you will face trial on the day of keyamat (the day of judgment).
Like two other woman convicts, many of them started crying. Later, members of the law enforcement agencies requested all to leave the courtroom.
Police then took all of convicts to the prison van on the way to jail. Many of them including the prime accused Sirajuddaula were crying at the time.
