“The Nusrat murder case is almost cracked as police have already got details, including the motive behind the killing and those were involved in the incident. Police will soon disclose the details,” he said.

The minister was talking to newsmen after attending a programme to handover five vehicles to police by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) in the capital’s Uttara area in the evening.

He said all of those who were included in the First Information Report (FIR) of the case and others whose names were revealed by the accused during their confessional statements before the court under Section 164 of the penal code have already been arrested.

Replying to a query, Asaduzzaman assured that if negligence of any policeman is found in connection with the incident, he will be brought to justice.

Nusrat Jahan Rafi, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Sonagazi upazila of Feni, was set afire on 6 April allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against the madrasa’s principal Siraj Ud Doula for sexually harassing her last month.

After fighting for her life for five days, the madrasa girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on 10 April.
