The High Court on Thursday refused to grant a prayer for cancelling the remand of Aysha Siddiqa Minni over her husband Rifat Sharif's murder case in Barguna.

The High Court on Thursday refused to grant a prayer for cancelling the remand of Aysha Siddiqa Minni over her husband Rifat Sharif's murder case in Barguna.

An HC bench comprising Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader rejected prayer.

The court said it will not interfere into the issue of taking Minni on a remand as the investigation is going on into the case.

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Faruk Hossain sent some newspaper reports on the Barguna court order that placed Minni on a five-day remand in the murder case.

The SC lawyer told the court that Minni is the principal witness of the case but police arrested her as an accused of the case.

Other witnesses of the case may not dare to come forward and place statement before the lower court if a witness is arrested.

Advocate Faruk also said Minni is yet to recover the shock of her husband's killing but she was arrested in the case which is inhuman and illogical.

The lawyer verbally prayed to the HC to direct the lower court on a suo moto move to cancel the remand order.
