College student Khadiza Akhter Nargis, who was stabbed by a suspended Bangladesh Chhatra League leader and returned home on Friday after over four months treatment in Dhaka and Savar, gave her testimony before a court in Sylhet on Sunday in a case filed in connection with the attack on her.

Chief judicial magistrate Saifuzzaman Hero recorded the testimony. The court also fixed March 1 for hearing the arguments in the case. Khadiza appeared before the court around 10:30am with her family members. Thirty three witnesses testified before the court in the case.

On December 5, a court started hearing the case filed against suspended Chhatra League leader Badrul Alam for stabbing the college girl. Khadiza Akhter, 23, daughter of Mashuk Miah of Biswanath upazila and a student of Sylhet Govt Women's College, was stabbed on her way to home from college on October 3. Badrul hacked Khadiza mercilessly after she reportedly rejected his offer to have an affair with him. Hearing the victim's screams, locals rescued Khadiza and caught Badrul from the spot and handed him over to police after giving him a good thrashing.

Khadiza was taken to Sylhet Osmani Medical College and Hospital from where she was moved to Dhaka for treatment.
