Minni’s wish was finally fulfilled by coincidence in the verdict in the Rifat Sharif murder case in Barguna. Minni's fervent plea was that her husband's killers should be sentenced to death. However, the verdict eventually got a curse for her as the police investigation found evidence of her involvement in Rifat Sharif's murder. She herself got trapped. She was also sentenced to death along with five other accused.

Meanwhile, an old video clip went viral on Facebook soon after the verdict was announced. Where Minni is seen saying, “I want justice for the murder of my husband (Rifat Sharif). I want the guilty to be hanged.”

This short video clip has been shared on various Facebook groups and pages since last Wednesday. A man named Moin Musharraf commented, “Minni's wish has finally been fulfilled.”

A man named Naqib Yahya shared the video and wrote in the caption box, “Truth is always beautiful, must be accepted. This Minni is the mastermind of Rifat's murder.”

Barguna District Jail Superintendent (Jail Super) Md. Anwar Hossain said that at the moment there are no other women prisoners in the condemned cell of Barguna Jail except Minni. Apart from the other five male accused in the murder case, there are no other male prisoners in the condemned cell. 

The jail superintendent further said that according to the jail rules, all the six inmates were given plates, bowls and blankets in the condemned cell.

Besides, each accused has been given two sets of clothes by the jail. They will wear those. 

On June 26 last year, Rifat Sharif was publicly hacked to death in front of Barguna Government College by a teenage gang formed by Nayan Bond. The investigating officer issued a chargesheet on September 1 last year accusing 24 people in the murder case.

Of these, 10 are adults and 14 are children. The convicts in the murder case are- Ayesha Siddique Minni, Al Qayyum alias Rabbi Akon, Mohaiminul Islam Sifat, Rezoan Ali Khan Hridoy alias Tiktok Hridoy, Md. Hasan and Md. Rakibul Hasan alias Rifat Faraji.
