Woman finally buried 4 years after her death following court order
Hosneara Laizu, a converted Muslim, whose body had been kept at the Rangpur Medical College Hospital mortuary for over four years due to legal complications, was buried on Friday as per the Islamic rituals following a High Court order. She was buried beside her husband at Kazipara graveyard in Domar upazila’s Boragari union around 3pm. The High Court on April 12 ordered the burial of Hosneara as per Islamic rituals. The bench of Justice Md Miftah Uddin Choudhury asked Nilphamari’s deputy commissioner to execute the order. After receiving a copy of the court order on Thursday, the administration initiated the burial process in the presence of Executive Magistrate Umme Fatema and law enforcers. Although the High Court ordered the authorities to complete the burial in the presence of Hosneara’s family members, none of them was present there.

According to the prosecution, Nipa Rani Roy converted to Islam and took the name 'Hosneara Laizu' before marrying her lover Humayun Kabir Lazu on October 25, 2013. Her family filed an abduction case against Lazu. As Hosneara testified before the court in favour of Lazu, the court dismissed the abduction case. Lazu fell sick under mysterious circumstances while returning home from Rajshahi along with Hosneara's father by train on January 14, 2014. He later died at a hospital. Hosneara killed herself on March 10. Later, both the families moved the court seeking the body for last rituals as per their respective religions. Hosneara’s body had been kept at the hospital mortuary since March 10, 2014, as the issue remained unsolved.
