Death-row convict Minni seeks bail again

Death row convict Ayesha Siddika Minni filed a bail petition again with the High Court (HC) today (April 21) in her husband Rifat Sharif's murder case. 

The High Court bench comprises of Justice Md. Ruhul Quddus and Justice AKM Rabiul Hasan may hear the application.

Minni filed the petition through her lawyers ZI Khan Panna, Syeda Nasrin, Md Shahinuzzaman, and Nazmus Sakib Tusti.

Shahinuzzaman said that the mansion slip has been submitted for hearing the bail application. Now the hearing will be held on the day when the application comes up on the agenda.

Rifat, 25, an internet service provider, was hacked by a group of youths, led by prime accused Nayon Bond, in front of Barguna Government College in broad daylight on June 26, 2019. Rifat died at Barishal Medical College Hospital later that day.

A video clip of hacking Rifat went viral on social media, in which Minni was seen screaming while desperately trying to stop the two men from attacking her husband with sharp weapons, was made the first witness in the case.

Later, a Barguna court on September 30, 2020, sentenced six people including Minni to death after scrutinizing the Rifat Sharif murder case.
