Nusrat's mother told the court, "On March 27, she went to Thana with Nusrat. Later, Nusrat was taken to OC's room, but she (Nusrat's mother) was not allowed to go into the room. After some time Nusrat came out of OC's room and told her that OC Moazzem video recorded her statement. Earlier, her veil was removed."

After coming out of the room her crying sister told them, OC removed her veil and asked her objectionable questions.
