Feni, Apr 20 (UNB) – Awami League leader Ruhul Amin was placed on a five-day remand on Saturday for his alleged involvement in the murder of madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Shoraf Uddin Ahmed passed the order after Police Bureau of Investigation produced him before the court.
Amin is the chief of the ruling party’s Sonagazi Upazila unit and the vice-president of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa’s governing committee. Nusrat was a student of the madrasa.
Police detained him from his house on Friday afternoon and showed him arrested in the murder case.
Nusrat was set on fire on April 6, allegedly for refusing to withdraw a sexual harassment case against madrasa principal Sirajuddoula.
She died five days later at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
