Later, Siddhirganj police recovered the throat-slit body of Rifat. Following media report, Tofazzal identified the body and filed a case with Narayanganj Police Station. After examining records and witnesses, Narayanganj Additional District and Session Judge Mohammad Rabiul Awal handed down the verdict.
