The victim's family is frustrated over non-cancellation of a bail allegedly obtained through 'forgery' by the accused in Nayar Sultana Lopa murder case.
Lopa--who was allegedly killed by her husband, Ali Amin, at their residence at Gulshan-1 on October 16 last year-portrayed Tuni's character in Ei Shob Din Ratri, a mega TV serial of Humayun Ahmed.
In November 2014, Ali obtained bail from the Metropolitan Session Judge Court by producing a woman as plaintiff before the court.
The fake complainant argued in the court that Lopa committed suicide. Following her statement, Judge Zahirul Huq granted bail to Ali.
Sensing this, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID)-- also the investigation agency of the murder case--and the lawyer of the plaintiff, Razia Sultana, lodged separate appeals with the court seeking cancellation of the bail.
Four dates have already passed but the court is yet to come up with any decision on the petition. The next hearing has been fixed on November 12.
Razia Sultana, mother of the victim, told the daily Observer on Friday that they had been disappointed at repeated delay of the court in the matter. Besides, two accused-Amin Ali and Yasmin-are still at large.  
She claimed that all the accused are still living in their house at Aga Khan Colony of Bashundhara residential area in the city.
Razia said that the accused first time did not comply with the court summons.
She blamed the Anti-Corruption Commission lawyer Mosharraf Hossain Kajol for siding with the accused.
 "Kajol should have sided with the plaintiff as a state lawyer but instead he stood for the accused. It is unexpected," she said.
The police recovered the body of Lopa hanging from a ceiling fan from their residence.
Immediately after the recovery of the body, the victim's family members claimed that she was killed by Ali Amin and filed a murder case with the Gulshan Police Station.
On October 17, police produced the accused, Ali, before the court from where he later obtained bail through forgery.  
Following the controversial first autopsy report, the body of Lopa was exhumed from her grave and the second autopsy was conducted.
