New video released: Minni takes Rifat to the hospital by herself

Another new video of the Rifat murder has been found in Barguna. This video was captured on CCTV of Barguna General Hospital.

It is learned that after beating Rifat in front of Barguna Government College, his wife Ayesha Siddiqua took her to a hospital all alone in an autorickshaw while she was bleeding.

The 28-minute video that recorded the activities in front of the Barguna General Hospital on that day has been collected.

According to the footage, Minni alone was seen bringing severely injured Rifat to the hospital by an auto-rickshaw at 10:21 am. Seeing Minni and Rifat in such condition, an unknown youth rushed in and helped Minni taking her injured husband inside the hospital.

Before entering inside the hospital, Minni made a phone call and soon after that her father Moazzem Hossain reached the hospital gate.

An ambulance which had been hired for carrying Rifat to Barishal was seen standing at the hospital gate at 10:38 am while it left with critical Rifat at 10:49 am for Barishal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital.

Contacted, Minni's father said, "I have collected the video footage and delivered it to some journalists so that people can see my daughter's effort in saving her husband's life. This clip has proved that she was not involved with the brutal murder. Rather, she tried her best to save Rifat's life."

"My daughter is a victim of local politics. But, I am trying to collect some other CCTV camera footages which will prove her innocence," he added.

On June 26, Rifat, 23, was hacked indiscriminately by a group of miscreants, in front of his wife Minni, in broad daylight on the premises of Barguna Government College. He died on his way to Barishal for better treatment. 

Police arrested Minni over the murder and she walked out of jail 49 days into her arrest after the High Court granted her conditional bail.
