Relatives of the accused  in the murder case of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi,   demanded exemplary punishment of the killers.

Shahidul Islam, the father of Umme Sultana Poppy, who was directly involved in the killing,  said his daughter fell in the trap of  the institution's jailed principal SM Siraj-ud-Daula.

He said on Monday his daughter should be punished for committing the crime.

He added though Siraj is his brother-in-law, he hates him for the incident.

Fatema Begum, the mother of Shahadat Hossain Shamim, one of the prime accused in the murder case of Nusrat Jahan Rafi, said : "   I want capital punishment of my son."

"I am feeling shame being a mother of a culprit son, " she added.

Rahmat Ullah, father of Javed Hossain alias Sakhawat Hossain Javed, who was directly involved with the murder, said his son was very simple in character.

He alleged that the madrasa principal used him as a tool to commit the crime.

"I also demand punishment of my son as he has committed the crime, " he added.

Meanwhile, demonstrators under the banner of several organizations in Feni organized protest rally demanding a judicial inquiry into the role of police over the Nusrat murder.

Madrasa student and Alim examinee Nusrat lost her battle for life, five days after she was set afire on April 6, an incident that touched off outrage all over the country.

A group of five people poured kerosene on the 18-year-old girl and set her afire allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case against the principal of the madrasa over sexual assault on her late last month.
