Death of university student: Probe report on Mar 4
A court in Dhaka has fixed March 4 to submit the investigation report in a case filed over killing a private university student after raping her in capital's Mohammadpur area.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nivana Khair Jessy on Monday (February 15) fixed the new date as sub-inspector (SI) of Mohammadpur Police Station Sajedul Haque, also the investigation officer of the case, failed to submit its report today.
Mortuza Raihan Chowdhury and Nuhat Alam Tafsir, students of the same university, were arrested following a case filed by the victim's father with Mohammadpur Police Station. In the lawsuit, the young woman's father made four of her friends accused.
The court on January 31 placed Raihan and Nuhat Alam on a five-day remand in the case and both of them were sent to jail after they confessed to their involvement in the rape during the remand.
According to the case documents, Raihan and the victim went to the house of Arafat from Mirpur at 4pm on January 28. The trio, later, went to a restaurant in city's Uttara area where their other two friends were waiting. They drank alcohol at the restaurant.
Raihan and one of his friends took the young woman to one of her friend's house in Mohammadia Homes Limited in Mohammadpur as she fell sick and raped her there.
When the victim's physical condition deteriorated, the duo first took her to Dhanmondi Ibn Sina Hospital. As the hospital refused to handle the patient, she was then taken to Anwer Khan Modern Hospital where the victim succumbed to her injuries on the morning of January 31.
The victim's father lodged the case before her death.
One of the accused in the case Arafat, who fell sick after drinking alcohol, also died at City Hospital in Mohammadpur on January 31.
