Rape accused Bux refused bail

A district court in Alipore on Wednesday denied bail to Shahzada Bux, the prime accused in the rape case that led to the death of 33-year-old activist Mir Amirul Islam.

Bux who was arrested in connection with the rape of a minor will continue to remain in judicial custody.

Meanwhile, the investigative team of the Anti-Rowdy Section once again visited Amirul's residence and recorded the statement of his friend Parvez, one of the four named by Bux in a case of robbery by Bux's wife after Amirul and his friend took up the case of the rape victim. "We have been cooperating with the police. While we as the complainant had to sit for four hours, answering to their questions, will the police subject the officers who drove Amirul to commit suicide to a similar interrogation?" said Anwar.
