Md Joynal Abedin Khan :
A five-member investigation team of Police Headquarters (PHQs) are trying to verify the controversial role of Superintendent of Police (SP) of Feni and former Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Sonagazi Police Station.
They are looking into the letter sent by Feni SP Jahangir Alam to the Police Headquarters on 11 April. He blamed Nusrat's family for 'dillydallying' in filing the case over her death, said the PHQs sources.
The team will prove the alleged negligence of local administration, including ex-Sonagazi OC Moazzem Hossain.
The committee will also investigate whether there was any kind of remissness in the administration, including the real reason behind the incident. The committee will submit the report very soon as per the instruction of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Javed Patwary's order, they said.
The PHQs  panel led by  Deputy Inspector General (DIG-media) SM Ruhul Amin on Wednesday went to Feni to prove the murder of the madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi. The remaining three members of the investigation team are two Additional Police Superintendents and one Inspector. The investigation committee members are to visit Sonagazi incident spot, Reports our district correspondent quoting police.
In the meantime, three days after taking the responsibility of investigating the murder case of Nusrat Jahan Rafi, Banerjee Kumar Majumder, Head of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), submitted the primary report of the investigation to the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
According to PHQ sources, Feni SP Jahangir Alam attempted to save ex Sonagazi OC Moazzem Hossain from his notorious role.
The SP blamed Nusrat's family for 'dillydallying' in filing the case for her death, they said. The letter was forwarded to the police headquarters, the special branch and the DIG office of Chattogram range, they said.
Accordiong to the letter, though the police requested Nusrat's family repeatedly to lodge a case, they delayed. As the police tried to file a case by her uncle as a plaintiff, Nusrat's brother Mahmudul Hassan opposed. Mahmudul Hassan changed the case statement two times, the letter elaborated.
Police Super Jahangir Alam, however, declined to comment regarding the allegations.
Nusrat's family also alleged that the letter was sent to protect the OC.  
According to family, police played foul with the case statement. They demanded their  security from the local administration and law enforcing agencies.
Moazzem Hossain was withdrawn on april 10 following the plaintiff's no-confidence in him.
He has been sued with Cyber Crimes Tribunal under the Digital Security Act.
According to the case statement, the OC called Nusrat at the police station on March 27 after she filed a case against Maulana SirajUd Doula, Principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, for sexually harassing her.
During interrogation at the police station, he put into her offensive and unpleasant questions over the incident. Later, the OC spread the video on social media.
DIG Ruhul Amin said that the committee would talk to the police and Nusrat's family about the allegations against the SP and the OC.
We are gathering evidence, crime clues, accused' confessional statement and records to investigate the murder incident properly, he said.
Meanwhile, a Feni court placed an Alim examinee, Kamrun Nahar Moni, on a five-day remand on Wednesday, hours after she was arrested in connection with Nusrat murder case. Moni, a classmate of Nusrat,  was arrested on Monday night, was among the five who directly took part in the killing, said PBI Inspector and IO of the case Md Shah Alam.
In another development, suspect Md Shariful Islam alias Sharif was arrested from Dhaka's Kamrangirchar last night for his alleged involvement with the incident, he said.
With this arrest, police have so far arrested 17 people in connection with the murder, he said.
On April 6, a group of five unidentified persons poured kerosene on the 18-year-old Nusrat and set her afire allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case against the principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa over sexual assault on her late last month.
There was a complaint of sexual harassment by madrasa student Nusrat against the principal Siraj Ud-Daula. Nusrat's mother Shirin Akhter filed a case with Sonagazi Police Station on March 27. Then the police arrested the principal. Nusrat's family was under pressure to lift the case.
