The committee will be valid for 6 months

An ad hoc committee was formed at the Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa after the previous governing body was suspended following the murder of Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

The committee seeking approval, sent a letter to the registrar’s office of the Islamic Arabic University on Tuesday.

The committee which will be valid for six months has appointed Feni Additional Deputy Commissioner Sujon Chowdhury as its president and acting Principal Mawlana Md Hosain as secretary.  

On April 6, Nusrat was set on fire for refusing to withdraw a case her family filed against madrasa principal Siraj-ud-Daula for sexually harassing and assaulting her.

The 18-year-old girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10, after five days of treatment.
