Nusrat was set on fire on April 6

Students of Tangail's Maulana Bhashani Science and Technology University (MBSTU) have formed a human chain demanding justice for Feni’s Nusrat Jahan Rafi. 

Criminology and Police Science Department students formed the human chain in front of the campus's Administration Building, around 11am on Sunday.

The students demanded punishment of those who were involved with the murder of the 18-year-old madrasa student.  

Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Madrasa in Feni, was set on fire.

Among the protesters, Prof Dr ASM Saifullah, dean of Life Science Department, Muhammad Abdul Kadir, chairman of Criminology and Police Science Department, spoke in the protest program.

"Only extreme punishments against the assaulters can prevent such heinous acts," Prof Dr ASM Saifullah said.

The students of different departments were also present at that time.

Ever since Nusrat's death, thousands of citizens have been forming human chains in several districts, demanding justice for her.

Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islami Fazil (Degree) Madrasa, was set on fire by four burqa-clad assailants on April 6, a little before sitting for her Alim examination.

The assailants, reported supporters of madrasa principal, Md Sirajaddaula, allegedly lured her to the roof, poured kerosene on her, and set her on fire.

Nusrat died on April 10, five days after she was set on fire, due to extensive burn injuries, at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital burn unit.

Till now, police have arrested 10 people in connection with the murder, including the main accused—Md Sirajuddaula—and his student Nuruddin.
