Members of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) have detained another suspect Kamrun Nahar Moni in connection with the death of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

She was detained from Feni on Monday night, said PBI's Additional SP Moniruzzaman. 

Moni is a niece of  Shahadat Hossain Shamim, the key accused in the Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder case. On the day of Nusrat's murder, Moni comes to Madrasah, carrying one-litre kerosene. Moni was detained for investigation, PBI said. 

On April 6, Nusrat Jahan Rafi, a student of Sonagazi Fazil Madrasah, was set on fire allegedly by some fellows as she refused to withdraw a case filed against the madrasa principal for sexual harassment.

She succumbed to injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on April 10.
