16 sentenced to death for burning Bangladesh teen alive

Bangladesh FENI – On Thursday, 16 pastors were sentenced to death for murdering a Bangladeshi teenager who did not withdraw her charges of sexual assault against her principal.

Nusrat Jahan Rafi was abducted with kerosene and fired on April 6 after complaining of sexual harassment to the principal of a rural Islamic seminary.

After being arrested for alleged harassment in a court in the southern coastal city of Feni, the pastor who ordered a brutal murder in prison was sentenced to death.

Others included some students, including activists from the ruling Awa US League party and two women (including those who participated in the murder or kept the doors of the seminary).

“The verdict proves that no one can avoid murder in Bangladesh. Hafez Ahmed told reporters after ruling in a crowded court.

Raffi was dragged to the roof of the seminary in Sonagazi, forcing the attackers to withdraw their complaints to the police.

When she refused, she was tied up and used as kerosene and burned. She burned 80{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} of her body and died in the hospital four days later.

Her death provoked fear throughout the country as protesters in the capital, Dhaka, protested for "preliminary punishment" for murderers.

The murder put pressure on Sheikh Hanna to do more to protect women, and the government ordered the establishment of a sexual violence prevention committee in about 27,000 schools.

Bangladeshi youths were burned and sentenced to death.
