Oishi ordered sent to BSMMUNew Age Online
The High Court on Wednesday directed the concerned authorities to transfer Oishi Rahman, the prime accused of murdering her parents, to the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University hospital immediately to assess her mental state before and after the killings.
A vacation bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice Zafar Ahmed also directed the government and the police to provide Oishi with psychological counseling if necessary.
The court passed the order after hearing a public interest litigation writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Jyotirmoy Barua, seeking a directive to transfer Oishi to the hospital from the female jail and to produce Oishi's house help Khadiza Akhter Sumi to the High Court to decide her matter.
The court, however, gave no order on the issue of the house help, who is also in jail.
On Aug 17, Oishi surrendered to the Paltan police and later admitted to the magistrate that she had stabbed her parents to death while they were sleeping.
Prior to going to sleep, the couple took coffee mixed with tranquilizers, she admitted in her confessional statement.
On August 24, a metropolitan magistrate sent Oishi, an O-level student of the Oxford International School, to the juvenile correction centre in the case of killing her parents Mahfuzur Rahman, a special branch inspector, and his wife, in their Chamelibagh house, probably on August 15 night.
