A Dhaka court today placed another accused on five days remand in a case lodged over rape and subsequently murder of a student of University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB).

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Shikder passed the order, placing victim’s friend Farjana Zaman Neha on five-day remand.

Earlier, police produced the accused before the court and pleaded to place her on seven-day remand. Police arrested Neha from a house in capital’s Azimpur area last night.

The court on January 31, placed victim’s friends and accused Mortuja Raihan Chowdhury and Nuhat Alam Tafsir on five-day remand as father of the victim filed the case with capital’s Mohammadpur Police Station against four people including Neha, Mortuja, and Tasfir earlier on that day.

According to the case documents, Mortuja on January 28 took the victim to Bamboo Shot Restaurant in Uttara Sector-3, where Neha and their other friends were already present and they mixed excessive alcohol in her drink.

At one stage, the victim fell sick and Mortuja took her to their friend’s Tasfir’s house. There Mortuja raped her. Next day, they took her to Ibn Sina Hospital and later Anwar Khan Modern Hospital, where she died two-day later.
