Verdict brought peace across Bangladesh as everyone was hoping to see a fair trial, said Hafez

Public Prosecutor Feni District Judge Court Hafez Ahmed has said justice has been served in the Nusrat murder case following the death penalty of all the accused.

He made this statement while briefing the press after Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal passed the verdict around 12pm on Thursday.

Hafez said: "Death sentence to all the accused in this sensational murder case, is like a triumph of humanity against oppression.

"This verdict brought peace across Bangladesh as everyone was hoping to see a fair trial."

He also hoped that the High Court division of the Supreme Court will quickly settle the appeal and convict the perpetrators. 

Plaintiff's Counsel Advocate Akramuzzaman told Dhaka Tribune: "Nusrat's brutal murder evoked a nationwide riot, which is why the verdict made everyone happy."

He further said that there was a slight uncertainty about the quick trial of this case due to the lengthy process of the country's court procedures. "However, the quick delivery of the verdict is going to be used as an example for future references,"Akramuzzaman said.

A human rights activist advocate Jahangir Alam said: "The remarkable aspect of this verdict is that all the proceedings have been completed within 61 working days.

"The killers tried to save themselves by framing the killing as suicide, but failed."

Both the media and mass people's role to bring justice to Nusrat, was praiseworthy, Jahangir said.
