The reason behind Minni`s death sentence

Shahnawaz Sharif alias Rifat Sharif’s wife Aysha Siddika Minni and five others have been sentenced to death for killing him in Barguna in broad daylight last year. While four others were acquitted.

Barguna District and Sessions Judge Md Asaduzzaman passed the verdict Wednesday.

Rifat's wife Aysha Siddika Minni was the main witness in the murder case at the beginning. But as time went on, the mystery of the murder began to unfold. Police filed a charge sheet against 24 people in the Barguna Senior Judicial Court against Minni as the seventh accused.

According to the charge sheet filed by police, Ayesha Siddique Minni was the mastermind behind the murder of her husband Rifat Sharif. She was initially thought of as a witness in the case but was later arrested as an accused in the investigation. Accused Nayan Bond and Rifat Faraji killed Rifat Sharif in Minni's plan.

A senior district police official said there were multiple reasons behind accusing Minni in the Rifat Sharif murder case. Firstly, Minni has testified in court admitting her involvement in the murder of her husband Rifat. Besides, Rifat Faraji, the second accused in the case, his brother Rishan Faraji, the third accused, Rabbi Akon, the sixth accused, and Tiktak Rhidoy, the 12th accused, have admitted Minni's involvement in the confessional statements.

Rifat, 25, an internet service provider, was hacked in front of Barguna Government College in broad daylight on 26 June 2019. He died at a hospital hours later.
