Law enforcers arrested another suspect in connection with the murder of Alim examinee Nusrat Jahan Rafi from Mymensingh on Friday.

Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) arrested the suspect, Nuruddin, from Seedstore area in Bhaluka upazila around 10:30am.

Mymensingh PBI Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Abu Bakar Siddiqui, said Nuruddin was taken to the PBI office after being arrested. 

Earlier, police arrested two more suspects --  local leader of Awami League and a councillor of Sonagazi Municipality Moksud Alam and a madrasa student Javed Hassan -- over the murder of Nusrat Jahan Rafi. 

On 6 April, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre allegedly by people loyal to the principal of her madrasa after he was arrested and subsequently suspended as she had accused him of sexually harassing her.

Nusrat Jahan lost her battle for life on Wednesday night, five days after the incident at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH).

Ten people, including the madrasa principal, have so far been arrested in connection with the arson attack.

Meanwhile, a Feni court on April 10 placed the principal on a seven-day remand and two others on five-day over the incident. The two others are Abser Uddin, lecturer of English department of the madrasa, and student Arif.
