The police have investigated the barbaric murder of a teenage student who was set on fire after she had accused her headmaster of assault.

Nusrat Rafi, 19, was extinguished in paraffin and set on fire by a gang of fellow students at an Islamic school in Bangladesh after refusing to drop her accusations.

While thousands of Bangladeshi women and campaigners around the world demand justice for the teenager, investigators revealed that they had recovered burkas that Nusrat & # 39; s attackers carried to disguise their identities.

The police made 17 arrests and reportedly received confessions from two of the alleged attackers.

Nusrat claimed that the director, locally named as Siraj-ud-Daula, violated her in his office in March, but that when she tried to report it to the police, officers would have said it wasn't a problem & # 39; used to be.

Video footage of March 27 shows Nusrat – who lived in the small town of Feni, about 100 miles from the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka – sadly filing her complaint with the police and describing how the rector mistakenly touched her & # 39 ;.

But the video caused a backlash against the teenager among loyal conservative Muslims who, according to local reports, led to the savage attack on her.

In a moving video, she repeated her claims against the headmaster and mentioned some of the students who allegedly attacked her. Although she was in a panic, she said: & the teacher touched me, I will fight this crime until my last breath. & # 39; Nusrat died four days after the attack that took place on April 6

Two students told the police that the headmaster had ordered them to kill Nusrat if she refused to withdraw her allegations against him.

The pair is said to be one of four or five students who lured Nusrat to the roof of the religious school, used scarves to tie her hands and feet, and handed the director's ultimatum.

After setting her on fire, the gang fled and reportedly brought their burkas to a nearby channel where they were found.

Nusrat suffered 80 percent burns. She was taken to the hospital with an ambulance with her brother, who registered her attack account on his cell phone.

Hundreds of protesters have since gone to the streets of Dhaka to demand that the gang be prosecuted

Campaigners say that cases of sexual harassment and violence against women are often not reported in the conservative and primarily Muslim nation of 160 million because the victims feel intimidated and stigmatized. Bengali actress Alisha Pradhan (26), who participated in the Dhaka protests, said: & We want justice. Our girls must grow up safely and with dignity.

& # 39; We protest against any form of violence against women and the authorities must ensure justice. & # 39;

Sheikh Hasina Wazed, 71, the Bangladeshi female prime minister, has met the Nusrat family and promised to bring her murderers to justice. The local police chief has been removed from office due to suspected & # 39; negligence & # 39 ;.
