The High Court (HC) yesterday adjourned till today the hearing on a bail petition filed by Aysha Siddika Minni, wife of Rifat Sharif who was brutally killed in broad daylight in Barguna. After initial hearing, an HC bench asked the lawyers of Minni to submit a supplementary petition by today including the statements of Superintendent of Police of Barguna that was published in different newspapers after his press briefing over the arrest of Minni and some other documents.

The HC bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman came up with order after primary hearing on the petition. Advocate ZI Khan Panna appeared for Minni while Deputy Attorney General Md Sarwar Hossain stood for the state during the hearing.

Earlier on Sunday, Minni filed the petition with the HC seeking bail in a case filed over the murder of her husband Rifat Sharif. Earlier, on August 8, the HC vacation bench of Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman denied bail to Aysha Siddika Minni in the case. The bench said the court will only issue a rule in this regard, but it will not grant her bail at this stage of the case upon which Minni’s lawyers took back her bail petition.

Earlier, a Barguna court rejected Minni's bail petition twice on July 22 and 30 respectively. After being rejected in the trial court, Minni submitted the petition with the HC through her lawyers on August 5.

Police arrested Minni on July 16 after a day-long interrogation and produced her in the court for remand the following day. No lawyer represented Minni during the remand hearing in the court.

Rifat Sharif, a 25-year-old Internet service provider, was indiscriminately hacked by a group of 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.
