Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) on Thursday demanded judicial inquiry into the role of police over the much-talked-about Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder.

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) on Thursday demanded judicial inquiry into the role of police over the much-talked-about Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder.

The anti-corruption watchdog, in a press statement, also demanded strong enforcement of law against the people responsible for the killing.

TIB said the number and scale of such cruelties against women have taken an unpredictable turn.

“There is no alternative of strong enforcement of law against the offenders and their cohorts to resist the situation,” TIB said in the statement.

Madrasa student and Alim examinee Nusrat lost her battle for life, five days after she was set afire on April 6 -- an incident that touched off outrage all over the country.

A group of five people poured kerosene on the 18-year-old girl and set her afire allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case against the principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa over sexual assault on her late last month.

Principal Siraj Ud Doula has been in jail since Nusrat’s mother filed a case accusing him of sexually harassing Nusrat at his office room on March 27. 

Police have so far arrested 14 people in connection with the Nusrat murder.
