A Barguna court has rejected the bail plea of Ayesha Siddika Minni, wife of Rifat Sharif, who was killed in broad daylight outside Barguna Government College on Jun 26, 2019.
Md Sirajul Islam Gazi of Barguna Senior Judicial Magistrate court passed the order on Sunday (Jul 21).
Advocate Mahbubul Bari Aslam represented Minni during the hearing in the murder case of her husband Rifat Sharif.
Minni turned from the prime witness to an accused in the sensational murder of Rifat Sharif after new CCTV footage was found of the incident.
On Jul 14, addressing the newfound video footage, Rifat's father Abdul Halim Dulal held a press conference demanding the arrest of his daughter-in-law in connection to his son's killing.
This also sparked protests across the country demanding justice for Rifat.
The video of the attack later went viral on the internet, and it sparked outrage across the country.
Slain Rifat’s father, Dulal Sharif, filed a case with Barguna police accusing 12 people.
