Nusrat murder: ‘Money laundering case to be filed if proof of illegal transaction found’

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today said a money laundering case will be filed if it finds any illegal transaction linked to the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

Molla Nazrul Islam, special superintendent of Organised Crime Division of CID, said this while talking to The Daily Star.

CID, from some news media and the investigation agency, has come to know that there was some illegal money transition regarding the murder, the CID official said.

A team of CID will visit the crime scene and conduct investigation of its own.

“If the allegations are right, we will file money laundering case against the responsible people along with the other cases filed against them in this regard,” Molla Nazrul Islam added.

Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) is currently on charge of the investigation of Nusrat murder.


Madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi lost her battle for life on April 10, five days after she was set afire at a madrasa in Feni -- an incident that touched off outrage all over the country.

On April 6, a group of five unidentified persons poured kerosene on the 18-year-old girl and set her afire on April 6 allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case against the principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa over sexual assault on her late last month.
