Munia’s death: Bashundhara MD among 8 sued over ‘rape, murder’

A rape and murder case was filed on Monday against Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir and seven others over the death of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia in her Gulshan apartment in April this year.

The seven other accused are: Bashundhara Group’s Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan Shah Alam, Shah Alam’s wife Afroza Begum; Anvir’s wife Sabrina Sayem; Faria Mahbub Piyasha; Saifa Rahman Mim; landlord of the flat where the victim was staying, Ibrahim Ahmed Ripon and his wife Sharmim Akhter.

Munia’s sister Nusrat Jahan Tania filed the case with Dhaka’s 8th Tribunal for Prevention of Women and Children’s Repression.

Judge Mafroza Parvin recorded the statement of the complainant. After the hearing, the judge directed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit a report on it within seven working days.

Earlier on August 19, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury relieved Anvir of the charge of incitement to suicide of the college student.

On July 19, the investigating officer of the case, Gulshan Police Station officer-in-charge Abul Hasan, submitted a final report to the court giving a clean chit to Anvir.

Anvir was not found culpable in the suicide incitement case of Munia in the final report submitted by the investigating officer and asked for his name to be dropped.

On April 26, police recovered the hanging body of Munia from the flat in Gulshan in the night. Munia’s elder sister Nusrat Jahan Tania filed a case against Anvir that night accusing him of incitement to suicide.

According to Tania, her sister Munia was in a relationship with Anvir who regularly visited her at the Gulshan apartment.
