Proper police action could have prevented Nusrat murder

Says Parliamentary panel
STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Ministry of Home Affairs have expressed resentment over the failure of law enforcement agencies, including the police, in taking effective measures to thwart the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
The murder of Nusrat Jahan Rafi could have been prevented had the law enforcement agencies taken effective and timely measures, the members observed in a meeting of the parliamentary standing committee, held at Parliament Bhaban, on Sunday.
The committee members expressed their resentment over the barbaric killing and asked the law enforcement

agencies to bring all the perpetrators involved in the murder to justice and to remain alert to avoid such incidents in future.
Presided over by the chairman of the standing committee, Shamsul Haque Tuku, the meeting was attended by home affairs minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, Habibur Rahman, Shamsul Alam Dudu, Faridul Haque Khan, Pir Fazlur Rahman, Noor Mohammed and Sultan Mohammed Mansur.
Meeting sources said that a committee member, Pir Fazlur Rahman, raised the much-talked-about issue of Nusrat’s murder by fire and the committee chairman backed him in this respect.
Pir Fazlur Rahman told the meeting that had the police remained alert, steps could have been taken before occurrence of many incidents.
Referring to Nusrat’s complaint to the local officer-in-charge (OC), Pir Fazlur Rahman said if the police officer had taken the matter seriously, Nusrat’s murder would not have taken place. He expressed his resentment at the behaviour of the police in the regard.
Committee chairman Shamsul Haque Tuku also said that the loss of lives in many cases could have been avoided if the law enforcement agencies had given the highest priority to information they received.
He said the meeting asked law enforcers to remain alert in future so that such incidents did not recur. The chairman said the next meeting would discuss elaborately the updates in the Nusrat murder case. Nusrat Jahan Rafi, an Alim class student of a Feni madrasa, died at the burn unit of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10 after battling for life for five days. On April 6, she was doused with kerosene and set on fire for having filed a sexual harassment complaint against the principal of the madrasa.
