FENI, Oct 24 (UNB): Although one year has elapsed since a tribunal delivered its verdict in Feni madrasa student NusratJahan Rafi murder case, her family's wait to see the execution of the verdict is yet to end.

During a visit to the residence of Nusrat, this correspondent saw that police are providing security to her family members. The brutal killing of Nusrat is still haunting the parents and brother of Nusrat.

Nusrat's brother, MahmudulHasanNoman, said, "We've got the verdict and we want its execution soon. This is unfortunate that no step has been taken yet to execute it!"

He also demanded immediate steps to execute the verdict after hearing the appeal petition of the four death-row convicts.

On October 29, 2019, the death reference of the tribunal reached the High Court, said plaintiff's lawyer advocate M ShahjahanSaju.

The Chief Justice formed a bench for hearing the appeal and the hearing will be held on priority basis as soon as the Covid-9 situation improves, he said.

Nusrat was set on fire on April 6, last year on the roof of a madrasa she attended by people loyal to principal Sirajuddowla whom she had accused of sexually harassing her.

She succumbed to her injuries four days later at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
