The accused threatened the victim's family, demanding they call off the case

A district and sessions court judge has cancelled the bail of Masud Bepari, who is the accused in a case filed over the rape of a college student in Shariatpur.

The court rejected the bail on Thursday, and sent the accused back to jail. 

Additional Judge and current in-charge of the court Marium Moon Munjuri granted Masud interim bail on Monday, leading to public outrage and demonstrations in front of the court on Wednesday.

On June 29, Masud, son of Zajira Municipal Mayor Yunus Bepari, reportedly raped and attempted to murder one of his relatives at his own residence. 

Police was informed around 10pm on the same day, and Masud was arrested within four and a half hours. 

On June 30, the victim along with her father filled a case with Zajira police station,  and Masud was sent to prison the next day.

On Sunday, Masud's lawyer petitioned for his bail and state lawyers asked for seven days remand, but both were denied at the magistrate court. On Monday, Masud was freed after reapplying for bail.

The victim's father said: "A man name Kuddus Mridha, along with eight to ten other people, tried to break in to our house on Monday night and threatened us, demanding we call off the case. He again threatened us over the phone on Wednesday, and later we filed a general diary with Zajira police station."

"We are grateful to the court for cancelling Masud's bail and urge for maximum punishment," he added.
