Wrongful imprisonment of Minu: Actual convict Kulsumi now held

Police finally arrested Kulsum Akhter Kulsumi for whom one Minu Akhter served in jail for three years wrongfully in a Chattogram murder case.

Chattogram Kotwali police arrested her from Patenga thana area early morning on Thursday.

OC Md Nezam Uddin confirmed the matter to Banglanews.

Kulsumi was a convict in RMG worker Kohinoor Begum murder case. 
Kohinur was killed in her rented house in port city's Rahmatganj area on July 9, 2006.

A case was lodged over the murder with Kotwali Police Station and police arrested one Kulsuma Akhter and sent her to jail in 2007. She later came out of jail on bail.

On November 30, 2017, a court in Chattogram sentenced her (Kulsuma) to life-term imprisonment in absentia after trial.

Kulsum then offered Minu to appear before a court on behalf of her in exchange of money and food. Minu agreed and surrendered before the court on June 12, 2018, impersonating herself as Kulsum, and was immediately sent to jail to serve her term for the crime.

However, Minu was released from jail on June 16. Later, she died in a road accident in Bayezid area of Chattogram city on June 28.
