The organized crime unit of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is collecting information regarding the allegations of money laundering in the murder case of Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

CID probe committee chief Additional Superintendent of Police Md Faruk Hossain said: “We have begun investigation into the allegations of illegal cash and bank transactions between the accused surrounding the Nusrat murder case.”

“If these allegations are proven, the accused will be charged with money laundering,” he said while speaking to reporters in Feni’s Sonagazi Tuesday afternoon. 

Banks suspected of concealing indicting evidence regarding illegal transactions surrounding the case, will be investigated after collecting statements from Bangladesh Bank’s money laundering branch, he added.

Meanwhile, a probe committee formed by Feni police headquarters on Tuesday investigated into police’s negligence in handling Nusrat’s case.

Investigation team spoke to several union parishad chairmen, locals journalists and several other students of the madrasa and recorded their statements Dhaka Tribune

Additional Superintendent of Police Md Abu Sufiyan told reporters: “The committee led by Deputy Inspector General Md Ruhul Amin, has been gathering intelligence for the past three days.

“The team spoke to several union parishad chairmen, locals journalists and several other students of the madrasa and recorded their statements.”    

The committee will soon complete its reports after collecting all the requisite information, he added.

According to the confessional statements of two key accused Nuruddin and Shahadat Hossain Shamim, Sonagazi Municipality Councillor Maksud Alam, gave them 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 Siraj-ud-Daula.

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.
