Feni, Apr 13 (UNB) – BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Saturday alleged that the killing of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi has demonstrated a serious slide in law and order in the country.
“Police has no control on the law and order as they are only busy to suppress the opposition. Nusrat’s murder has exposed that the law and order situation has badly deteriorated,” he said.
Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after visiting the bereaved family members of Nusrat at their Sonagazi house.
A BNP delegation, led by Moudud, went to Nusrat’s house in the afternoon and talked to her relatives and tried to console them.
Moudud said the way adolescent madrasa girl was killed by being set on fire was very tragic and brutal. “An innocent girl fell prey to the lust of a teacher. We were stunned over the incident.”
He said the government should ensure prompt trial of the offenders and ensure justice for Nusrat’s family members.
BNP vice chairmen Barkatullah Bulu, Mohammad Shaha Jahan, Abdul Awal Mintoo, joint secretary general Mahbubuddin Khokan, organising secretary Mahbubur Rahman Shamim, former MP Rehana Akter Ranu and BNP executive committee member Nipun Roy were, among others, present.
Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Sonagazi upazila of Feni, was set ablaze on April 6 allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against principal Sirajuddoula of the madrasa for sexually harassing her last month.
After fighting for her life for five days, the madrasa girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on Wednesday night.
