He has been implicated in the murder case by two other accused

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has detained Awami League’s Sonagazi upazila unit President Ruhul Amin for questioning in the Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder case.

He was called into the PBI office in Feni for interrogation on Friday around 5pm, confirmed Special Superintendent of Police (PIB) Chittagong range Mohammad Iqbal. 

Nusrat murder case Investigation Officer Md Shah Alam (PBI) said: “Ruhul is one of the 12 people who was implicated in the April 6 attack on Nusrat based on the confessional statements of two accused in the case.

“According to the confessional statements of Nuruddin and Shahadat Hossain Shamim, after now suspended Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa Principal Md Sirajuddaula was arrested last month in a rape attempt case filed by Nusrat’s family, Ruhul instructed Nuruddin and Shahadat to initiate a movement demanding Sirajuddaula’s release from jail.”

“Sonagazi Municipality Councillor Maksud Alam, who is also currently in police custody, had also given Nuruddin and Shahadat Tk10,000 for the job.”

“Later, another teacher of the madrasa also gave the duo Tk5,000 to stage a demonstration and burn Nusrat to death.”

Alim examinee Nusrat was set ablaze on the roof of the madrasa on April 6 morning by four burqa-clad assailants after she refused to withdraw the case against Sirajuddaula.

The 18-year-old, with 80% burns on her body, died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10 after battling death for five days.
