Shipra Rani Debnath, who was arrested in a narcotics case following the murder of retired Major Sinha Md Rashed Khan, has expressed her determination to go far for justice.
Shipra, a filmmaker and student of Stamford University's Film and Media Studies Department, made the statement in a Facebook post today, a day after she got bail in the case.
"Back to my family. Just allow me some time," said Shipra, who accompanied the slain Major (retd) Sinha in Cox's Bazar to make a video.
Expressing her gratitude, she thanked everyone for the support people have been giving since the murder on July 31 in Cox's Bazar's Marine Drive.
Earlier on Sunday, a Cox's Bazar court granted bail to Shipra Rani Debnath.
Major (retd) Sinha had been in Cox's Bazar with the students to make a documentary film. Earlier on July 31 night, Sinha was killed in a police firing on Cox's Bazar's Marine Drive.
After the shooting, police arrested Sifat, who was travelling with the retired major, at the spot while Shipra was picked up from a local resort. The duo was accused in two different lawsuits – attempted murder and narcotics cases.
On August 1, police produced them before the Cox's Bazar court and the court sent them to jail.
