Court Sentence 16 people to death after a 19-year-old female student was burned alive
The teacher ‘told them to put pressure on Rafi to withdraw the case or kill her if she refused’, senior police superintendent Mohammad Iqbal, who led the investigation, had told AFP.
According to Iqbal, some of those arrested were Rafi’s classmates who had tied her up with a scarf before setting her on fire.
‘The plan was to pass the incident off as a suicide. But it fell through after Rafi managed to come downstairs while on fire because the scarf burnt and freed her hands and feet,’ he said.
Her Headmaster, Siraj Ud Doula was among three teachers found guilty over the case, along with two local politicians, Ruhul Amin and Maksud Alam.
