Staff Reporter :
Police have formally shown  arrest Umma Sultana Popy alias Shampa, one of the key suspects in the killing of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
"Shampa was detained several days ago but she was formally shown arrest in the case on Monday," said Moniruzzaman, Additional Superintendent of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) in Feni.
Shampa was one of the four Burqa-clad people, whom Nursat named in her dying declaration for setting her on fire on Apr 6.
PBI investigation also found she supplied the burqas to the perpetrators before the Apr 6 incident. "Shampa will be put on remand following a court order," said Moniruzzaman.
Police detained Shampa along with five others after the case was filed.
Earlier on Monday, a Feni court also placed ex-Awami League leader Maksud Alam, a Sonagazi municipality councillor, on a five-day remand a day after he was arrested from Dhaka.
Maksud, also a member of the governing body of Sonagazi Senior Fazil Madrasa, was suspended from the party on Friday.
On Apr 6, Nusrat was set ablaze at an examination centre allegedly by people loyal to the madrasa's principal Siraj-ud-Doula after he was arrested and subsequently suspended as she had accused him of sexually harassing her.
