Bangladeshi Student Burnt to Death for Reporting Sexual Abuse

BBC

A schoolgirl was burned to death in Bangladesh on the orders of her head teacher after she reported him for sexually harassing her, police said on Friday, according to Aljazeera

The death of 19-year-old Nusrat Jahan Rafi last week sparked protests across the south Asian nation, with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina promising to prosecute all those involved.

Rafi was lured to the rooftop of the madrassa she attended where her attackers asked her to withdraw the sexual harassment complaint she had filed with police.

When she refused, she was doused in kerosene and set on fire. Rafi died from burns covering 80 percent of her body on April 10.
