Prime minister says burning someone to death is a heinous crime

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said those responsible for Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s death will not be spared.

She said this speaking at the Awami League Advisory Council meeting at her Ganabhaban residence on Friday.

The prime minister said: “Burning someone to death is a heinous crime. During the Liberation War the Pakistan Army used to kill people like this. In 2014, during the elections, the BNP-Jamaat alliance killed people in the same way. 

“And now, the Feni student was murdered in the same way. None will be spared; the culprits involved will be punished.”

“I personally believe they will have to face exemplary punishment so that none can dare to commit such heinous crimes in future," Sheikh Hasina said.

She said she has no word to denounce the heinous act that a female student was killed in setting on fire without any cause by a madrasa principal.

The 18 year old student of Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa in Feni was set on fire on April 6, right before her Alim examination, on the madrasa's rooftop, by four masked individuals, reported to be supporters of madrasa principal Md Sirajuddaula.

The victim's family lodged a sexual harassment case on March 27, against madrasa principal Md Sirajuddaula, accusing him of attempting to rape the girl in his office.  

Battling death for five days with 80% burn injuries to her body, the Nusrat died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) around 9:30pm on April 10, after her condition critically deteriorated, Dr Raihana Awal of DMCH told Dhaka Tribune.

Even though, the prime minister had ordered DMCH authorities to airlift her to Singapore for better treatment, if necessary. The doctors at Singapore General Hospital and DMCH concurred that Nusrat was not in a condition to be airlifted.

Till now, police have arrested 11 people in connection with the murder, including the madrasa's principal.
