Requesting the intervention of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Minni demanded justice for her slain husband
Ayesha Akhter Minni, the wife of Rifat Sharif who was killed in a broad daylight attack recently, has said that the prime suspect, Nayan Bond, used to harass her before marriage. He forced her to talk to him over the phone and threatened to kill anyone who came between them.
"When I informed my family about Rifat, with whom I had a romantic relationship, they arranged our marriage,” she said, adding, "I had also informed the matter to my husband."
Recounting the fatal attack on her husband by a group of men armed with sharp weapons, Minni said: "When Nayan, with others, attacked Rifat in front of Barguna Government College, I tried to save him, but bystanders did not come forward seeing the sharp weapons."
Requesting the intervention of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Minni demanded justice for her slain husband.
A surveillance video footage of the attack, which went viral on social media platforms, shows Minni screaming for help during the attack and trying to stop the assailants. But nobody comes forward to help the couple.
Rifat was critically injured in the vicious attack and later died at Barisal Sher E Bangla Medical College Hospital.
Rifat’s father has lodged a case accusing 12 people, and police have already arrested a man identified as Chandan.
