On April 8 her brother Mahmudul Hasan Noman filed a case with Sonagazi model police station under woman and child repression prevention act.
On March 27 Nusrat’s mother filed a case under woman and child repression prevention act against madrasa principal Siraj-ud-Doula over allegation of sexually harassing her daughter. Nusrat gave her statement before the court of senior judicial magistrate ASM Emran on March 28. On that day Sonagazi police arrested the principal.
Lawyer of the plaintiff Advocate Shahjahan Saju said, before her death Nusrat in her statement told that she was burnt as she denied to withdraw the case filed against the madrasa principal. Nusrat succumbed to her injuries on April 10 at the Sheikh Hasina Burn Unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital while undergoing treatment.
