Rifat Sarif`s wife Ayesha Siddiqa Minni was produced in Barguna Senior Judicial Magistrate court on Wednesday (Jul 17).Barguna Senior Judicial Magistrate Mohammad Sirajul Islam Gazi has rejected Aysha Siddika Minni’s appeal for seeking treatment while she is being held in connection with the murder of her husband Rifat Sharif.

The court passed the order on Monday (Jul 22) after Barguna Bar council general secretary, Advocate Mahbubbul Bari Aslam, filed the appeal on behalf of Minni.

After the hearing, lawyer Mahbubul Bari told: " I have filed two appeals including Minni's treatment. The court rejected both.

"We want to withdraw the confessional statements Minni gave before the court under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Minni's signature is needed on that withdrawal application.”

"Another appeal was for the production warrant (PW) of Minni to produce her before the court for the signature. The court rejected the plea. However, the court said that the jail authority will take necessary measures on the matter."

Earlier on Jul 21, the same court rejected Minni’s bail plea.

On Jul 16, police arrested Minni. A court placed her on a five-day remand the following day.

On Jul 19, a Barguna court recorded the statements of Aysha Siddika Minni in connection with the case filed over the murder of Rifat Sharif, who was hacked to death in broad daylight.
