Police on Thursday announced the arrest of another suspect in connection with the murder of Rifat Sharif in broad daylight in Barguna town last month. 

Maruf Hossain, superintendent of Barguna police, at a press briefing at his office around 11:30am said police arrested Rishan Farazi, number 3 accused in the sensational murder case.   

Rifat, 22, was attacked with sharp weapons near the main gate of Barguna Government College on June 26. His wife Aysha Siddika Minni appeared to be trying to protect him during the broad daylight attack caught on surveillance camera.

Police arrested Minni on Tuesday night after a daylong interrogation. A court granted police five days to interrogate her in custody.

Apart from Minni, 13 suspects have so far been arrested. Seven of them have reportedly confessed to their involvement in the murder.
