Police arrested Ayesha Siddika Minni, wife of Rifat and main witness of Barguna Rifat murder case. She was arrested on Tuesday night at around 9pm.

Earlier, she was taken to Barguna Police Lines from her village home around 10:00am for recording her statement, said Maruf Hossain, superintendent of police in Barguna.

Minni was inside the police lines till filing the report at 8:30pm.

Barguna's SP Maruf said that Minni is the number one witness and eyewitnesses of Rifat Sharif Murder Case. Her statement was recorded and she was brought to Barguna Police Line for interrogation. At night she was shown arrested in this case.

Earlier, Minni alleged that propaganda is being run against her to hide the accused in the murder case of Rifat Sharif.

She said this to reporters at her home on Sunday in protest against the press conference of her father-in-law Dulal Sharif. On July 13, Abdul Halim Dulal Sharif, father of Rifat Sharif, demanded immediate arrest of his daughter-in-law Minni.

Rifat Sharif, 25, an internet service provider, was attacked and killed by two youths and some others with sharp weapons near Barguna Government College in front of his wife on June 26.

The victim’s father filed the murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station, accusing 12 people including prime suspects Nayan and Rifat Farazi. Of them, Nayan was killed in a “gunfight” and Rifat Farazi was arrested later.
