Feni Awami League General Secretary Nizam Uddin Hazari has said he will bear the expenses of Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s murder case.

The lawmaker announced this on Monday; at an event arranged at the Feni Shaheed Minar by a volunteer organization named Amra Kojon Shecchashebok.

He said: “I will personally bear all expenses for the operation of Nusrat's case. The culprits will most definitely be brought to justice.”

Feni Awami League President Abdur Rahman Bikom, Municipality Councilor Lutfar Rahman Khokon Hazari were present at the event, among others.

Nusrat, who was an Alim examinee, suffered 80% burns when she was set on fire—by four burqa-clad unknown assailants, who were allegedly followers of now suspended madrasa Principal Sirajuddaula—on the roof of the institution at Sonagazi on April 6.

She was attacked for refusing to withdraw a case her family filed last month against Sirajuddaula for sexually harassing and assaulting her.

After she was set on fire, her family filed another case against eight people including Sirajuddaula on April 8.

The 18-year-old girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10 after battling death for five days.
