Minni gives confessional statement under pressure

  • Print


Staff Reporter :
Aysha Siddika Minni, wife of Rifat Sharif killed in broad daylight in Barguna town, on Friday confessed in a Barguna court to her involvement in the murder, police official said.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Sirajul Islam Gazi of Barguna recorded her confessional statement under Section 164, Inspector Humayun Kabir, who is investigating the case, told the reporters.
After recording Minni's statement for three hours, the court sent her in jail,     
 the Inspector said. "As Minni agreed to give her confessional statement in the court, we produced her in the court without completion of her remand," he said.
However, the Investigation Officer did not reveal what Minni told the court in her confession.
But her father, Mozammel Hossain Kishor, alleged that his daughter gave confessional statement under pressure.
Fifteen suspects, including the victim's widow Minni, have been arrested so far in the case.
Earlier, police arrested Minni on Tuesday after a daylong interrogation and produced her in the court for remand the following day.
No lawyer represented Minni during the remand hearing in the court.
Minni is the key witness to the murder of her husband that took place in front of Barguna Government College on June 26.
But the discussion took a new turn when Minni's father-in-law recently alleged in a press conference that his daughter-in-law might be involved in killing of his son, Rifat Sharif.
In reply to this allegation, Minni said, her father-in-law raised false allegation being influenced by the conspirators.
Rifat Sharif, a 25-year-old internet service provider, was indiscriminately hacked by a group of rowdy youths there.
In a video footage of the incident that went viral in the social media, Minni was seen screaming and trying in vain to save her husband from the assailants.
The victim's father filed a murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station against 12 people on the same day.
The prime accused in the case, Nayon Bond, was killed in a "gunfight" with police on July 2.
