Verdict on Feb 12

A court in Tangail yesterday fixed February 12 for delivering the verdict in a case over the murder of law student Zakia Sultana Rupa who was gang raped in a running bus before being killed on August 25 last year.

Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Abul Hossain fixed the date in the morning after the closing argument of both sides.

Earlier on January 23, the court concluded the recording of the depositions of witnesses in the case. Twenty-seven witnesses out of total 32 testified before the court.

On October 25 last, a court here accepted the chargesheet against the accused—bus driver Habibur, its supervisor Safar Ali, and helpers Shamim, Akram and Jahangir—in the case. Rupa, 27, was murdered after gang rape in a running bus while returning to Mymensingh from Bogra on August 25 last.

Police recovered the bloodstained body of Rupa from Panchmail area of Madhupur upazila on that night.

Following post-mortem, she was buried at the town central graveyard as unclaimed body. Later, victim’s relatives identified her seeing her photograph.

On August 28, police arrested the five accused from Mymensingh in this connection.

On August 31, police exhumed the body of Rupa and handed it over to her family for burial in a proper manner.

Rupa, who completed her Masters from Bogra Azizul Haque College, was studying law at Dhaka Ideal Law College.
