Friends and relatives have left Barishal to Barguna with Rifat Sharif’s body who was murdered in front of his wife in broad daylight in Barguna. 

On Thursday, the freezing ambulance left from Sher-E-Bangla Medical College Hospital to Rifat’s village home.

During this, Rifat's friend Manjurul Alam Jon was with the body. “After showing the body to Rifat’s relatives, friends and locals, burial would be done after namaz-e-janaza,” he informed.

“There are three big wounds in the neck, head, chest on Rifat. He died due to excessive bleeding for cutting in throat’s veins. There are a total of seven to eight large wounds in the body. Rifat died due to bleeding from these wounds,” said Jamil Hossain, Assistant Professor of Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital’s Surgery Department. 

Earlier, Rifat’s father-in-law Mozammel Hossain came under critics while bringing the body from the hospital. During this, Rifat’s friends chased him away. 

Witnesses said that journalists surrounded Mojammel Hossain when he came to the hospital. During this, he said that the killers were not identified with his daughter. They used to harass Minny. “Son-in-law was murdered because he was protesting against the incident.” During this, Rifat’s friends called Mojammel Hossain as a liar. Then they chased him away.  

Rifat was hacked to death by Nayan Bond and his associates in front of Barguna Government College on Wednesday morning. Rifat was first brought to Barguna Sadar Hospital and later to Barisal Sher-E Bangla Medical College Hospital. There he died in the afternoon. CCTV footage of the murder went viral on Facebook. The police arrested one person in this incident.
